Good story but Simply too long
11 December 2013 | by See all my reviews

I watched this as a 2 part DVD. Hopefully it's the same thing as the 3 parter. I'm quite fond Anna Friel, and was interested in seeing what this is about. It's a 140 minute mini-series which is probably better as a 100 minute movie.

The biggest problem school teacher Ellie (Anna Friel) has is getting pregnant. However when she's told that her husband is killed in a car crash with some strange woman, she has to re-evaluate her life. Only the more she digs into the incident, the more she refuses to believe that her husband was having an affair.

This is not that original. The general route of the story was obviously telegraphed from the start. It was never in much doubt that the story would unfold in that way. It may be the power of Anna Friel that her character was never challenged competently. Either that or the writing never allow the other characters to sound reasonable as they keep opposing her. This movie needs to struggle more with her investigation. And the movie is just too long. It's unnecessary for such a simple plot.
