Powerful performance from Scott-Thomas. Great directing. The characters built up at a nice pace but there were enough subtle turns to keep them interesting. The weakest link for me was its ending but still a very good movie.

A well-acted drama about a woman leaving prison after a 15-year sentence and the efforts she and her younger sister go through to make the transition. I was surprised at how easy the transition was, but perhaps that is partly because very little is mentioned of life in prison apart from long walks in the recreation area and being withdrawn. But apart from being told by her boss that she needs to be more sociable with her colleagues (who see her as standoffish), she integrates easily into her sister's family (including developing a closeness with the older daughter) and friends (they spend a weekend with three other couples in a country home). The emotional journey didn't quite make sense to me, but I enjoyed the acting, the small details, the attempts to connect, the use of light (in the extras, the director reveals the influence of painters such as Edward Hopper in some of his compositions). Enjoyable.

Stunning film. Kristen Scott Thomas is brilliant as she usually is. Builds slowly but keeps you on edge. A tear jerker but in a good way. A must-see.

An interesting look at life after prison. This film is a bit predictable but none the less enjoyable.

Scott-Thomas delivers a powerful performance in this somber well constructed film.

An interesting film worth seeing.

Great movie. Unfolding slowly, the main character initially is withdrawn and uncertain of her future, As we see her interact with her family, after a long estrangement, she reveals more and more about herself and her feelings. Kristen Scott Thomas plays the lead and reveals her multidimensional character powerfully yet restrained.

Brilliant in its simplicity of style. Overwhelming to see how one person loving you- really loving you - for a long time can make all the difference. The performances of both leading ladies will awe you.
