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 (408 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

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.
Uncomfortable Viewing but Completely Worth ItBy a customer , 31 Aug 2013As per title, not an easy watch if you're feeling delicate but the performances, in particular Olivia Colman's, are electrifying. Very brave film and worth it for when you're feeling robust.
They don't come much better than this.By Navydonald (3 reviews) , 30 Aug 2013Difficult to watch in places but thought provoking and ending with a sense of possible redemption for both the major characters, one of whom is aggressive and would rather act than think, the other is passive and would rather forgive than criticize, at least so you think.
A tour de force, a wonderful filmBy a customer , 24 Aug 2013This is an amazing, hard-hitting yet thoughtful film, as other reviewers say, it is hard to watch in parts, but completely authentic and kudos to Olivia Colman and Peter Mullan for their intelligent and sensitive portrayal of difficult roles. The only mystery is why I haven't heard of this film before - everyone should see it and learn from it.
