| Slow and unconvincing
It's a long slow haul. The dialogue appears to be improvised, which I imagine is supposed to make it sound realistic but instead adds to the overall tedium. I don't think the husband is a b*****d, he's just out of his depth. You'd think she would start by at least turning the radio on at home or watching a bit of TV in order to give herself a bit of company; She doesn't interact with any of the parents or teachers at the school, she just wallows in her own self pity and doesn't think to medical help. The Paris sequence is laughably unrealistic and the denouement leaves us guessing - not that I cared much by that stage. (Incidentally where is the garden square she wanders around at the beginning and end of the film? It doesn't appear to have any connection with the estate where they live.) Gemma Arterton suffers nobly but she's one of the executive producers, so she has to take a share of the blame for this unconvincing farrago.
