Based on a novel by Sarah Alderson. I have to admit that I have not read the novel and didn’t even know that this film was based on a novel before watching it. Lovely to see Luke Norris take on a more leading role. I have to say that I enjoyed the first half more than the second half. I felt as the film went on it got more and more ridiculous. There is nothing bad about this film but I could say that it is a typical Friday night film where you just want to switch off and not think about anything. Despite its failings I actually quite enjoyed it for what it was. One of the things to enjoy in this film is the location filming in the town of Split in Croatia.
