Excellent
30 December 2013 | by drichmond123See all my reviews

I won't review the storyline because other reviewers have done so beautifully already. I just want to say that this is an excellent film with superb acting, fantastic cinematography, a complex and interesting storyline, and an emotional draw that sucks you into the lives of these characters.

I felt like I was there, in this cul-de-sac in England, with these families who were living, laughing, loving, and struggling in so many ways.

Film buffs will appreciate the creative eye of the director and the perfect combination of setting, set design, costume, acting, score, and cinematography.
