What makes this wonderfully deranged film fly is Rupert ("Maurice"; "Where Angels Fear to Tread") Graves.

The subtlety with which Mackintosh conveys her complicated mixture of vulnerability, defensiveness and pride makes [Kim] one of the most fully realized characters to be portrayed on the screen in a long time.
