Enjoyable, well acted.
30 December 2017 | by Sleepin_DragonSee all my reviews

As a story it somehow it could have been considered a little dated, like it could have been made in the Eighties, closeted husband sleeps with wive's younger brother yada yada. In truth though it's actually a decent film, the story does grab you, it unfolds well, and the acting is excellent. I thought Suzanne Collins was excellent as wronged wife Jane. Daniel Brocklebank, Jonny Labey etc all very good. It's depressing in tone, but in fairness contains some positive messages. Watchable, 8/10
