    Anne Reid sparkles in Roger Michell's slow-moving relationship drama.

    Anne Reid's performance is so brave and interesting that what could have turned into a perverse sort of soap opera actually becomes a challenging and deeply disturbing study of human complexities.

    Great idea for a story/beautifully told. Anne Reid is outstanding and Daniel Craig is great too. Not everyone's cup of tea/certainly not an easy watch but very good.

    I don't think I'll ever look at Anne Reid in quite the same way after watching this. Some of the scenes were..ehm..a bit racy, and something we could have done without given her age! It's a very good film, though, but perhaps sometimes seems a bit unbelievable... I think it would have worked better if May just had an unrequited crush on Darren instead.

    Brilliant acting by Anne Reid..thought provoking and difficult to watch at times but a great film.

    This movie creeped me out - particularly beCAUSE I am a woman "of a ceretain age" and HAVE been attracted to and had affairs with younger men.....but the movie made me see how uncomfortable the entire situation can become....and did for me......I was cringing when she was made love to by the man her OWN age....it was gross and disgusting since she did not WANT it. All in all, the movie was engrossing when I could understand the English accent and make out all the words.
