Number of Times Seen – 1 (10 Mar 2015)
Brief Synopsis – What would you do if you were faced with a life changing decision stemming from a momentary lapse of judgment? That’s the question these characters all have to ask themselves after an unexpected event changes everything.
My Take on it – So when Niall asked me to be a part of the Begorrathon, I had no idea what Irish movie I should watch, so he gave me a few suggestions and I randomly chose two based on one line blurbs.
This movie actually has a very good premise, but I felt that it took too long for the movie to get going.
The first 45 minutes bored the hell outta me as I was waiting to see what will happen.
On the other hand, once things begin moving with a bang, the next 40 minutes dealt with the subject of taking responsibility, self redemption, guilt, how feeling of eliteism make everyone around you act and making the right moral decision in a great way.
If the movie has been formulated differently (spent more time on the aftermath instead of waiting too long to get the ball rolling), I think this could have been much better and a more interesting movie to sit thru
Bottom Line – Takes too long to get to the point and less than half of the running time is devoted to the aftermath. Could have been much better had it been constructed tighter.
MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – Richard’s big breakdown scene was shot in three takes. Jack Reynor was so drained afterwards that he was physically unable to do any more. (From IMDB)
Rating – BAFTA Worthy
