Oscar worthy
16 August 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I am not often moved to write a review, but felt I had to in this case, the other reviewers have given a lot of details, but what made me feel I had to write was the quality of the performances by the main characters, and gut reaction to the story.

Sean Bean continues to surprise and his portrayal of Simon/Tracie was so moving and unexpected. The poetry, tension, and direction from the golden city streets, to the bleak lakes and so much more make this something to remember. I am rambling a bit now but it is late at night and I am trying to write ten lines, when two words will do:- Oscar worthy.

Thank you BBC I Player, I would have missed this without you.
