Very Art-house, great cast and an interesting story. While there seems to be many haters of this film. I found it very entertaining. Since I have seen this film I have searched for other Maxine Peake films and watched them. We all love Maisie Williams actually she is why I watched this. The Director Carol Morley tells a beautiful story of love and life, give it watch!
