  • Bit of a snore.

  • This was a very good story, altho for me the ending was quite a let down. Never been a real fan of Michelle Williams, but I thought she did a very good job in this role. Ewan, as always, is never a let down.

  • A gritty and compelling drama about ordinary people caught up in extraordinary events. Michelle Williams is outstanding, although I have to agree with the previous reviewer who pointed out that her waif-like body seemed more Hollywood than working-class council estate. Still, a minor quibble in what is a worthy film.

  • I loved this movie for the depth of character and the sensitive way of showing a mother's spiral into utter grief. Michelle Williams is first class.

  • Really a poor movie, only a platform for Michell Williams. The only Good part was Matthew Macfadyen's comment that "Terrorism is not a battle against races it is a battle against another species"
