Movie Info

Suzy's a British soldier, born and bred, but fitting back into civilian life after fighting in Iraq isn't easy. Haunted by the responsibility she feels for the death of an Iraqi child, she becomes obsessed with the safety of her own daughter, feeling the need to protect her against a threat that doesn't seem to exist. As Suzy's paranoia builds, her behaviour becomes more and more erratic, until she starts to put her own child in serious danger.

The unfussy shooting style, the casting of actors both familiar from television and unknown and, of course, the dramatisation of a hot-button social issue all recall the films of Ken Loach.

A British coming-home-from-war drama that toes the line between the pedestrian and interesting, though tilting toward the former, In Our Name connects to the degree it does due to Joanne Froggatt's performance.

It's hard to have total sympathy with a psychologically-troubled mother who left her daughter to enter a war zone.

Welsh weakens his tale by making her man a brute and her situation enough to try a saint. But there is no doubting the strength of Froggart's performance. This is her film.

This is London

A powerfully acted but melodramatically plotted effort exploring the effects of post-traumatic stress disorder among British squaddies returning from the Middle East.

December 13, 2010 Full Review Source: Scotsman

Anchored by Froggatt's powerful performance, this is stark social realism steeped in honesty and humanity.

There's committed work here from Joanne Froggatt as a soldier returning from Iraq and struggling to readjust, but the film lets her down...

A movie that delivers less than it promises.

Welsh shows that the domestic war zone can sometimes be as frightening, tense and violent as the real one.

There are several "hey, surelies" in this film. But the tank trundles on and finally reaches its honourable, medium-powerful showdown.

December 8, 2010 Full Review Source: Financial Times

Hampered by over-scripted dialogue and an uncomfortable mid-film shift into thriller mode.

It's harsh and realistic for the most part, but starts to feel a little pushy in the final act.
