Very thought provoking.
12 August 2015 | by (Dorset, England) – See all my reviews

Well, this film surprised me! I wasn't sure what I would make of it, and only watched it because it's my day off and I had nothing else to do. What a gem I would have missed. The acting is superb. The subject is emotive. It leaves you with a profound sense of disquiet and unease that will catch you for a long time afterwards. I have learnt a lot about situations that I had no idea could happen, and I learnt a lot about myself. As the film moves forward to its conclusion, and one that is by no means foregone, I found myself agreeing with certain characters, and then changing my mind continually.

Certain incidents in the film may cause you to wonder why they were included, but I felt it only added to the force of the characters. Each person had their strengths and weaknesses, and that was admirably portrayed by the wonderful actors. Did I agree with the conclusion? No I didn't, but then maybe that makes me an idealistic person and maybe I don't have the strength to do the right thing? After all, the right thing to do is individual to each person, and is based on not just facts, but also their life experiences.
