Year: 2001
Genre: Drama
Conclusion: 3/5
This film wouldn’t have worked half as well if Kristin Scott Thomas wasn’t in it. A very well acted film by the three main stars of the film. I thought the script was very well written. There are no moments of boredom. As good as this film is it is one that you would sit down to after a long hard week at work and didn’t want to think. A typical Friday night film. The plot is very predictable but only just gets away with it.
