User Reviews

 
Viola Davis is superb as usual
26 January 2019 | by onlyfoolsSee all my reviews

I can't work out why the detectives failed in this film. Maybe their acting - it only seemed to become sincere in the last part. I think the quality was at fault - the sound wasn't as clear as it should have been.

Apart from that I really enjoyed this film. Both female leads were superb and totally believable. I liked the story too. Not so obvious and a good ending.
