Powerful, Intense and Deeply Moving
17 March 2017 | by dialminterSee all my reviews

The Work is a masterful film. It shows raw and powerful emotions, in a context that is entirely surprising. This film moves because it illustrates that, fundamentally, men inside and outside prison actually have the same types of issues. By so doing, you realise how we on the "outside" share similar baggage with those in prison, even the most hardened criminals. It's a film that cannot leave your neutral.
