Director: Sharon Maguire
Cast: Ewan McGregor, Matthew Macfayden, Michelle Williams
A disappointing film all round, surprising from an otherwise talented director ('Bridget Jones’s Diary') and a top-line cast … the problem being that it is a poorly written effort that quickly sinks into melodrama.
Williams plays a young mother whose husband and child are killed in a bomb attack on a London football ground while she’s off conducting a seedy affair with McGregor and which leads her, uninterestingly, into a love triangle with McGregor and Macfayden.
There is nothing about the shallow characters to grab our interest while several sub-plots rise briefly to the surface and pop like bubbles to leave nothing memorable behind.
Ultimately this becomes a sort of non-film because there is nothing about it that sustains our concentration.
Star Rating: 1/5
