| Brenda Fricker is amazing
The story is compelling enough, but I was mesmerized by Brenda Fricker. The camera work was excellent as her face was held in the shot for a long enough period of time to really see her face, her thinking processes, her anger, all of it so subtly rendered. The little boy was adorable , too, and there was some decent acting all around. A worthy use of ones time.
