Great take on denial!
20 September 2009 | by boxcardeltaSee all my reviews

I stumbled on this film by accident and I'm glad I did. Reminded me of Michael Clayton, in that I knew something bad was going on and wasn't quite sure what it was although I thought it had a great and satisfying revelation at the end. I think this was the first time I have seen a film that deals with denial rather than just the booze and addiction. Thought the cast were great and very believable, especially Kelly Rowan who actually managed to make us feel sorry for a potentially unsympathetic cut-throat lawyer! Surprised this was a CTV show, felt more like a US cable type thing. Might not be to everyone's taste because you really had to concentrate to work it all out and there were no guns or explosions in it!
