Paddy Considine's directorial feature film debut is so powerfully played that by the time it's over you'll be gasping for air.

Lacking in DinosaursBy manonfireuk (401 reviews) from Liverpool , 12 Oct 2011
[Highly rated reviewer]This is not a film that is easy to watch or easy to forget. It's raw and intense with career defining performances from Peter Mullen and Olivia Coleman. A very well made film

Real life.By a customer , 26 Sep 2013Hard hitting film, some scenes very hard to watch. Heartwarming worth a watch. Really enjoyed it, it made me smile, and made me cry.
depressingly powerfulBy a customer , 10 Sep 2013This really is worth a watch! Gritty and real are the two words I'd use to describe it. Although not an easy watch and in some scenes rather depressing if not disturbing the brilliant performances keep you engaged.
Life as it is for a lot of peopleBy a customer , 07 Sep 2013
THIS REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS Show review anywayHideA hard watch but a gripping one with the usual rough diamond performance from Peter Mullen (Surely getting too typecast now and a beautiful turn from Olivia Coleman as the domestic violence victim of a truly loathsome Eddie Marsan
A great watch.By johnb4 (1 review) , 04 Sep 2013What a watch! Almost turned it off in first few scenes when He kicked the dog. So glad I watched all the way through. Gritty and powerful stuff.
Quality FilmBy a customer , 01 Sep 2013If humanity with all its flaws and longings and failings is your thing, as it is mine, this is about as good as it gets. Two amazing performances from Peter Mullan and Olivia Coleman - two people grappling with the mess of their lives. Honest and convincing portrayal with no room for cliche or sentimentality.
