Goofs

At 8:34 when Rachel takes the latex gloves out of her pocket and puts them on her hands to give Philip a dental exam, she should not have done that because the latex gloves are no longer sterile after being in her pocket, she should have got a fresh pair of gloves from the box as those are sterile.

Quotes

[first lines]
Simon: [on answering machine] Rachel, hi, it's it's Simon. Um, I don't know how long you've got this flat for, but it's nice, so it's okay. I know you don't want to, but we've really got to talk about our house, and fix the price. I've tried calling you at work. Please ring back.

"Prison romance" isn't just that
6 December 1998 | by DFLSee all my reviews

This movie's premise-a prisoner and outsider falling in love- may normally turn many people off. Surprisingly, is well-scripted, wonderfully filmed (some of the best camera shots and angles I've ever seen, and exceptionally well-performed. Julia Ormond, who I normally don't much care for, was wonderful. Tim Roth, as usual, blew me away. It remains one of the few movies I can watch repeatedly.
