There's a little good in everyone.
26 December 2019 | by Sleepin_DragonSee all my reviews

If you're expecting something middle of the Road, and dare I say it, along the same lines as War of the worlds, you'll be disappointed, this is a very different, relevant and gritty.

I would say it improves as it progresses, the first twenty minutes or so are very slow, but once you get into the core of the story it becomes excellent.

Very gothic, very bleak, it's dark, it even looks dark, memories of Jamaica Inn.

Terrific acting, Pearce is the standout as Ebeneezer, others also impressed, Charlotte Riley and Stephen Graham were great.

I thought it was very impressive. 8/10
