Dind't expect much and I'm really happy I saw it.
20 July 2012 | by (Estonia) – See all my reviews

I must say, this is my first movie review ever, and that was the movie which made me do so.

Plot made me to really get into story and kept me hooked from beginning.

It was really well and acted. Cast did just awesome job especially parts they had to show characters emotions. I haven't seen a good British drama since "Harry Brown"

So if you are person who loves dramas which bring up a lot emotions and makes you put yourself in characters position, I Definitely recommend this film. I give it 9/10.
