    Dark, Independent Macho Brit drama film This is actually a great find for film fans and a good watch. The shoot, acting and story are all acceptably good and its menacing simplicity is the key. It starts off excellently but soon moves away from a dark film, to a film with story and purpose. This is an independent British film which sees a man kidnapped and imprisoned in a room on a farm for over 30 days. The sleazy victim is played by Manc Stephen Lord, with his main holder (of a pair) being Cockney actor Ricci Harnet (Carlton Leach from Rise of the Footsoldier). It is slow, aggressive, menacing and dark for the most part. The victim is a druggie with a no doubt dodgy past and this unveils as the grim story unfolds, via flashbacks and shared information. The characters are grimey and unlike-able but it is mostly gripping, making you want to stick with it and watch for the reason behind all this drama. The film is based on real events, whereby parents have kidnapped their own kids for forced drug rehabilitation. Hence the name of the film. My only gripes with this type of film is that is very demanding on the viewer and so can seem long, overplayed and although commendable in substance and message, the lack of activity can make it rather dull and taxing. For fans of such films as my review describes only.
