A Big Surprise!
22 March 2000 | by eddie-83See all my reviews

This under-rated & rarely-seen drama is a little gem. It's about the effect on an ordinary East London couple when they lose their only son in a hit-and-run accident.

But just as it threatens to slide into maudlin sentimentality the plot takes a totally unexpected turn before a climax that will leave you gasping.

Ray Winstone won the awards for a showy turn as the grieving, wounded Father but for me Pauline Quirke takes the acting honours with a restrained performance as his wife

See this one if you can.
