Lizzzy's rating of the film Lion's Den

I had big expectations of loving this film, but actually feel pretty ambivalent about it now. Maybe I was expecting a big social comment showpiece, and it wasn't really. Aesthetically sickly, especially in the prison scenes - I'm not saying this is a bad thing - it has the visual appearance of a headache or hangover at times. Maybe because she is in the shadow of an event she can't ever fully comprehend.
