British Class and Rough All In OneBy Stephen Daniels from Swindon , 09 Apr 2005
[Highly rated reviewer]Amanda Plummer playes an absolute stormer in this unusual and engrossing story of love and psychosis. The film ambles along at a nice (typically british!) pace, with the encounter of plummer and reeves the immediate chemistry of the two is evident. Reeves plays the shy ,sheltered and lonely british type working in a petrol station, when plummer enters causes some trouble and engages reeves in her outrageousness and violence. The two hitch up in a thelma and louise style escape from the mundaneity of life, which unlike thelma and louise is much more violent! the highlight of this film without a doubt is the finale which is the most moving scene i have ever seen in a film! well worth watching for this alone. watch out for lots of british cameos from well known and not so well known british actors at the time, this includes ricky thomlinson of 'Mike Bassett England Manager' and 'Royle Family' Fame. Just a word of advice ricky... Look out behind you!!

Wierd British Film - WORTH WATCHINGBy a customer , 25 Jul 2013This is a really wierd film- but strangely watchable. It isn't really a 'lesbian' film as such. I nearly gave up after 20 mins, but was glad that I didn't
Watchable reasonable fair filmBy The KnightWatcher (629 reviews) from Gloucestershire , 21 Feb 2013Macabre thriller about cold blooded serial killer (lesbian) who seduces an innocent girl into falling in love with her, and together they travel around like Thelma and Loiuse until it comes to an inevitable and tragic end. Watchable fair film.
Thelma and Louise Hang Out at Forton ServicesBy sp3ccylad (1 review) , 30 Dec 2011An interesting lo-fi debut from Michael Winterbottom explores outsider culture amongst the motorways of Lancashire.
Patchy acting and directing, but enough interest to keep me watching to the end.
Worth it..!By a customer , 21 Jun 2011Not bad, rather unbelievable plot and in parts script but well acted and stylish backdrops & photography redeem this film.
Butterfly KissBy a customer from Dover , 14 Mar 2011Didn't like this at all, I was hoping for a slightly-psychotic 'Thelma & Louise' but there was nothing to redeem it at all, just mindless violence. A waste of Saskia Reeves methinks.
