Herself
11 January 2021 | by marmar-69780See all my reviews

Herself is one good drama that showed how terrible domestic abuse really is and how people suffer because of it and even children the most perhaps.Characters were here very real and i was able to connect with them in a good way which is little surprise cause except this one i felt from previous year realese where characters were also very real with world and that was Sorry we missed you ,another British film that has a social commentary in it.Herself was a food drama with some sad and happy moments
