A Brilliant British Film
15 January 2006 | by JameswiffSee all my reviews

I saw this film on its opening night and had high hopes after seeing the trailer, and knowing that it had a very strong British cast. I wasn't disappointed. A cross between a black comedy, and a murder mystery, this typifies what independent films are about. It tells the story of a group of people who go to a self help therapy break at a Lodge hosted by Donna (the excellent Elizabeth McGovern). During this break the question of telling the truth is asked. Many of these people have issues and are urged to confront the Truth. I wont give much away because its better to urge you to go an see the film. It has very funny moments, and also some poignant moments.

All in all a brilliant film, with an excellent cast. Surely the best independent film of the year.
