Extremely emotional drama! 6/10
11 July 2015 | by leonblackwoodSee all my reviews

Review: For a low budget English movie, which has seemed to have gone missing under the radar, I really quite enjoyed this emotional drama. Its about a woman who works in a benefit office and she's  keeping her pregnancy secret because she doesn't know who the father is. She hasn't slept with her long time boyfriend for ages and she hasn't had an affair with anyone so she knows that questions will arise, once she tells her boyfriend. Her son can tell that she is pregnant and he is really excited about having a brother or sister. The only problem is that the dates don't add up so her boyfriend (Elba) starts accusing her in front of there young son. The loving mother starts to lose her mind because she doesn't know how she got herself into such a confusing predicament. I loved watching this close family go through there life's with joy and love. The only downside was the immaculate conception, which never gets explained but apart from that, the movies did touch every emotional bone in my body. The acting from the whole cast, especially Elba, was very realistic and the chemistry between the family members was great. It reminded me a lot of my childhood, especially when the grand parents came round for dinner but I was expecting more from the ending. In all, it's definitely worth a watch if your into your deep family dramas but the whole pregnancy thing is still a mystery to me. Enjoyable!

Round-Up: Although this movie is based around 3 characters, there is enough material to keep you entertained throughout. Edris Elba put in his usual top class performance and at 42 years of age, he really does seem to be moving up in the movie world. He's had major roles in the Avengers and Thor and with the Jungle Book and another Luther series in the pipeline, his career is definitely going from strength to strength. Nadine Marshall has starred in many TV series like Casualty, The Commander, The Bill and Judge John Deed so she hasn't really got that much experience when it comes to the big screen. She done an excellent job in this movie and she made the film feel extremely realistic with such a delicate subject matter. Its the first major movie from Debbie Tucker Green but she has won a BAFTA for her TV short called Random. This is a very well put together project which is pretty slow in parts but very well written and a joy to watch.

I recommend this movie to people who are into their deep dramas about a woman who finds out that she is pregnant but she doesn't know how because the dates of her conception don't add up. 6/10
