Excellent script, hooks you from the beginning with the crisp editing. Casting is spot on and you don’t see the ending until the last minute. Worth a view!

The acting in this drama was beyond excellent. What a reversal from the films I have settled with in the past few years.

Like bad jazz all dissonance no resolution. Acting superb. Could be a series if they could graciously through the audience a crumb of resolution here and there. Oh and in real life PD don't act so rigorously on behalf of clients...it is an affluent persons fantasy.
