Rated 1/10. A terrible movie, not worth your time. Couldn't get past the first episode.

A Five Star violent and sexy British movie! The story is very compelling! A family with wild mother and children trying to find an identity for themselves. There is a struggle here on many levels of love, hate and retribution. I just couldn't leave it for a second. I loved the characters and the story so much. It really is a spellbinder!

Dark & violent movie with lots of use of the "F" word. Wonderful acting, great costumes, loved Desrae, what a terrific acting job. Be sure to watch the extra bits at the end of each disk.

It was O.K for a home TV movie. I was entertained and interesting. But it was NOT worth the long library wait or the price to rent from a Red Box. I fast forwarded a lot but not all the way.
