Stunted EmotionBy buffyrules (335 reviews) from southend on sea , 11 Apr 2012
[Highly rated reviewer]An interesting portrayal of grief and stunted emotion. The two leads rightly lacked chemistry but the plot seemed to ignore that. The strength of this film was what was left out allowing the characters to show who they were. At times this was a little unbelievable but ultimately made the film more compelling.

Very movingBy a customer , 16 Oct 2012If you like raw powerful and emotional dramas this is for you. Top quality acting as well, the two leads are really good.
Great performance from Michael Sheen. As always.By Anna_K (3 reviews) , 05 Aug 2012Ok so this movie is about a very sensitive subject but first and foremost it is a story about love, understanding and forgiveness. Michael Sheen is always brilliant at potraying deep and disturbing emotion and he doesn't fail to impress in this movie. Maria Bello is also always a pleasure to watch. I felt the movie being very honest and real and how everything and everyone is questioned by one persons actions.
good filmBy standard1999 (39 reviews) from Hatfield , 30 Jun 2012good film, pushes all the emotional buttons. I like it and I would recommend it. Good story and a watchable insight into terrible events
Worth a watchBy CarolineC (18 reviews) from Gidea Park , 24 Jun 2012Wonderful acting, good film, but if you're going to watch this kind of depressing film watch '|We Need To Talk About Kevin' instead/aswell. A much better film.
worth watchingBy lvwt (34 reviews) , 22 Jun 2012where We need to talk about Kevin left me cold, this had me swallowing a lump in my throat and wiping away a tear... mainly due to the relationship between the parents, who struggled with the raw emotion of not just loosing their son, but coming to terms with what he had done.
the whole film was helped nicely along by having such a small cast, giving it a very intimate feel........
Reminded me again why i rate Sheen as a great actor (Twilight made me forget for a while)
