Great cast, Great story!
5 April 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this when it screened in Toronto in the fall of 2011 and I completely LOVED it! Adam Sinclair and Kristin Kruek are so great as a somewhat shallow clubber who meets a lonely, married woman looking for a bit of excitement. They have perfect chemistry as they try to understand this new albeit different relationship. Billy Boyd is incredible as always and he manages to steal every scene he is in! One particular incredible scene is one in the hospital, you'll know it when you see it! Absolutely genius!!

Great direction, perfect music, incredible acting and another fine story by Mr. Welsh. This gritty, funny, saucy and endearing film is bound to become another cult favorite along side Trainspotting Whatever you do, do not miss this one!
