another solid entertainment from bbc
18 February 2009 | by deng43See all my reviews

i came to this seeking more susannah harker after seeing her in 'heat of the sun' and 'prime minister' and finding her captivating. almost all her work is for t.v.; this may be a blessing as if the movies discover her things might go south - movies can have that effect.

the entire cast is very good. gambon never lets us down and hannah is quite believable. i daresay none of the roles are badly cast. the script is written for real people, not mumbling wooden dummies - my main problem with most film is the lack of an intelligent and fun script. this one hits on all counts.

the plot is fairly standard but quite well done and this film comes up as very worthwhile viewing. a solid 8 out of 10; it won't change your life but will please you for a bit of time. bbc is simply the standard by which all else should be judged.

very odd how thinly seen and reviewed this piece is. don e.
