Hard to fault. Engaging. Highly recommend.
11 November 2015 | by kpentlandukSee all my reviews

I just watched Second Coming. Been on my 'to do' list since Mark Kermode placed it in his top ten films of 2015. As Mark says, the film leaves you to interpret much of the story. Performances are so very very good here. Award winning quality. The family moments are so touching especially the close relationship between Mark and Jax. They radiated a true special love that made me beam from ear to ear. All is not glowing domestically but what exactly is wrong is never spelled out to you. Interpretations will vary but I felt definite hints of domestic violence, mental illness, PTSD from previous abortions... there is a lot to think about here. It demands and I think will shine even more with repeated viewings.
