Casting and acting here leave nothing to be desired -- to say nothing about rich cinematography and deeply drawn characters seen from dual perspectives.
This film is truly one of a kind. The director captured that time period and the rural life of these people so well. For the critics that thought this film was typical, they were so wrong. I've never seen a film quite like this one. It felt so real. The story was great and the characters were great. The acting was fantastic especially from Tom Hardy but everyone was on their game. I haven't seen a gangster film quite like this one and set design, make-up, wardrobe, and acting took me right there. This was definitely one of the best films I saw this year and I don't think it's gotten it's proper due of praise or good press. Simply a great and timeless film!!
