The acting in this drama was beyond excellent. What a reversal from the films I have settled with in the past few years.
Great story, sad but very real, raw emotions
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.
Very real & impressive story & execution by cast in front of & behind the cameras.
The relationship between Beth and Peter was so interesting to watch unfold. I love how they were able to connect without any judgment because of the equal amounts of baggage that they both had. I wish they had more screen time. Julianne Nicholson is a beast!!
