Storyline

Harold Guppy (Rupert Graves) moves into the Beasley household as a lodger. Before long Mrs. Marjorie Beasley (Dame Julie Walters) falls for him and eventually ends up in his bed. Her thirteen-year old daughter Joyce (Laura Sadler) is aware of what is happening and threatens to tell Mr. Stanley Beasley (Matthew Walker) unless she is also allowed share the bed with Harold and "Mum". "Mum" seems to think there is no harm in this, as long as Joyce doesn't take part in the physical activities. Harold gets caught up in a web of deceit and blackmail, and each time he tries to break free of the grasp of "Mum", she threatens to tell the Police that he has been abusing Joyce. This movie continues much in this line, and it examines the effect of the relationship on both Harold and Joyce and how they are both driven to extreme action because of the influence of Mrs. Beasley.

Based on actual events??
3 October 2003 | by afncsuSee all my reviews

This movie was good, but very weird. It is hard to believe that people can be so demented. Laura Sadler gave a great performance as young Joyce Beasley. I was looking forward to seeing her in future movies, but sadly, she passed away.
