    It looks grim and then some, but it also looks rather intense so will check it out for sure. Was the book horror inflected? Kinda hard to pin down the tone

    Pugh is kinda cropping up everywhere now; not undeserved she's a fine actor but slow down Hollywood!

    That was fantastic.

    That was some serious amount of acting talent brought together.

    I enjoyed this. It takes a little while to get going, but once you fully understand the dilemma at the heart of the film, it is a compelling watch.

    That was a great little movie, it really pulled me in, its nice to have a film make you wonder which way its going to break. I had a quick look but couldnt find the production budget for it but Id guess it was quite low.
