    A great work of realism that unfolds as naturally as a kettle boiling water on the stove--only with better drama. 7 years 7 months ago

    Wonderful performance by Imelda Staunton. I could feel all her sincerity, shame, embarrassment, horror, and fear. Every feeling showed on her face and through her body. Such a sad - and most likely a real - story. 6 years 2 months ago
