Conclusion: 4/5
I really enjoyed this film. I felt watching this felt so much true to life that all the characters also seemed real. I felt I could totally sympathise with all the characters. Even though the family were going through this hard time I felt they were a real close unit and they all stuck it out together. I am a huge Sarah Greene fan and thought she did an amazing job and she made her part look so easy. One thing that made it work was the fantastic script. Even though there wasn’t much of a subplot they kept the film going. There was no point during the film where I thought it was going slowly. In some way it did remind me of a film that Ken Loach would direct in a way that it was to do with social realism. This film has also made me think and wonder how many people must have found themselves in a similar situation.
