Great little story
16 October 2014 | by lloyd150See all my reviews

This was a little gem which I found late at night. The story centres around a middle age wife and mother of two having an affair with a young college man. The acting was high class apart from the spurned husband, who I thought did not really get decent time to develop his back story. I thought there was a missed opportunity to go deeper into why the marriage was failing. The time was spent on the relationship between the woman and young man. His parents had issues which were not fully developed and would have made a good secondary story. So it could have been better but the main actors were first class and portrayed their roles very well. It moved quite quickly after the initial affair has started, it did start slow.
