“A quietly explosive film, a potent drama with a nuanced feel for subtlety and emotional complications.”~Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times
Aroview: A stunning, finely-modulated drama with Charlotte Rampling and Tom Courtenay playing a married couple whose trust and belief in their forty-five year relationship is jolted when a past romance comes to light in the form of a letter.
Favouring small and authentic truths over melodrama, the script, direction and performance coalesce with rare and satisfying precision.
3 stars (Good Enough) Tom Courtenay is as great as ever & Charlotte Rampling, with her understated half-smiles fading as the film goes on, is even better. Movie says important things about marriage & how two people may see things differently. Very subtle~Sandy
5 stars (Exceptional) Fine evidence that some of cinema's richest drama can be found in quiet moments, unspoken words, and implication rather than incidents. Superbly written and acted, it's emotional heft sneaked up on me, and left me haunted.~fairbrother
