User Reviews

 
Deep emotional conversation matched with superb acting.
13 March 2020 | by riskavengerSee all my reviews

A very difficult story told with strong emotional dialog. Initially the story seems everyday, but as tragedy unfolds the conversation becomes more in depth sharing the impact and viewpoints from the main characters. Acting was superb especially from Josh O'connor.
