Quotes

Charlie: Look.. shut up.. be still and focus on the glass pyramid across the wharf. You're in the lift, now your going up, in front of you is a big red stop button, what do you do? Do you continue you to your way to the top? Or live out your life in total ignorance?

Late night BBC 1. Where would we be without it. Just caught this on what is now a Thursday morning.

It's TV actors, TV writer and a TV director and as a result has a rather small scale TV feel. It's not Human Traffic. It is, however, not an episode of Casualty. Everything is done very well, nothing is too OTT. Most of the cast can act and have a script that doesn't kill them, which happens all too often with 'Gri'y Youf Drama'.

Worth renting? Perhaps. Definitely worth staying to the end if you find yourself in front of it.

And yes, the music is pretty good, especially the trumpet which is ABSOLUTE Genius!
