I wanted to like this more than I did. Timothy Spall is one of my favorite actors.
The story is pretty straight forward as it was in the tagline.
I kept waiting for Mr. Harvey to unburden himself.
Not completely surprised by the way that it played out but and once again I enjoyed Mr. Spall's work.
I think for me the students were too precocious and played out poorly as well as the development of conflict, which bottomed out early on. I would like very much to find the final script because I felt like it was put together with a weak middle.
Whether I am right or not remains to be seen but it became a bit too melodramatic for me and I cannot in good faith recommend it.
I've certainly watched much worse as of late but this had potential to be much better than it was.
