Great acting by all and a really compelling story.

A tender,endearing uplifting drama that warms as much as breaks ones heart.

A masterpiece! This film shows that with few characters it is possible to create among the best works film art may offer. The 3 main actors are brilliant, the story deep-reaching, and it is a shame this film wasn't received and appreciated the way it genuinely deserves.

Sometimes it feels like a play, which it originated from, but overall the acting is pretty good.

A very different kind of movie. But good!!

While this is a good adaptation of the play, it lacks much of the emotion and depth it had on the stage. In comparison, it seems a bit two-dimensional. It's worth seeing, especially if you've seen the stage version and would like to relive it, but don't settle for this if you have the opportunity to see the play. I wasn't disappointed, but there's just nothing like seeing it live.

Bleak, offbeat, depressing, heavy, intense and extremely well acted. It is a skillfully made film, with very good writing, interesting characters. It's a bit strange at times, like Kevin Anderson's character being so extreme, it didn't ring true. Worth a look.

Based on a play. Albert Finney was wonderful. An all time favorite for me.
