Anti-clerical, pro-abortion & pro-gay pamphlet served by an excellent cast, but weakened by a convoluted and melodramatic script. So it does'nt look much better than a (good) TV movie. === Pamphet anticlérical, pro-avortement & pro-gay servi par un excellent casting, mais desservi par un scénario alambiqué et mélo. Du coup ça ne ressemble plus qu'à un (bon) téléfilm.
Every time I thought this film was going to crash and burn, whether it be a plot point or the way they handled delivering new information, they managed to get out of it. Judi Dench is great as well as Robbie Ryan's cinematography. It's a simple story, but I think the filmmakers handled the genre and character development very well.
