There's a lot of really stiff competition in this genre and hats of to Dan Reed for trying, I have no issue with his directing abilities but in term of writing. It was a chance to see her in another role. What I can't understand is the involvement of the companies behind this film - FilmFour and Verve Pictures. However, a van stops and a gang brutally assaults Adam and rapes Alice. But their physical scars don't run nearly as deep as their emotional scars, and before long Alice becomes overtaken by her drive for vengeance and determined to make her tormentors pay for their violent transgression.

A couple's lives are turned upside down when they are savagely attacked along a desolate dirt road.

A month later, while driving down a country lane, Alice recognises one of her attackers and follows him home. Alice meets Adam and convinces him to come with her to take revenge. I would maybe say rent instead of watching at the cinema.
Both of the main leads turn in great performances with special praise going out to Gillian Anderson. In the thick of the final equally brutal act of retaliation, she flees the scene leaving the monster she help create abandoned and distraught but determined to finish the job she started. It just simply happens, then nothing happens for an hour, then something interesting happens and then it ends. But then it started to get better about 50 minutes into the movie because things start to happen that are relatively entertaining, but some of the scenes are really unnecessary at times. The other problem I have with a film of this type is that in order for you to care about the plight of characters I believe you need at least a little insight into their lives prior to what we are seeing on screen, we need to know about who they are in order to root for them and I never really felt this film gave us the big picture in this regard. Definitely lacking depth, i left wishing i had known exactly what happens with Anderson's character and her father, along with simply wishing i knew Dyer's character better.
On her way out she picks u p an unlikely ally, an equally tortured sole, and drives off to find closure. A don't do this or this might happen element which adds to the tension but there's nothing of the sort here. If you are at home and see this on I would suggest seeing this. She takes him to a party in the country, and they end up making love. He isn't quite famous in the States yet, but he's great in the few films I've seen him in.
Adam dates Alice and has a dream night in the fashionable party inclusive having sex with her. I consider both Gillian Anderson and Danny Dyer to be good at what they do and was interested to see what Dan Reed could come up with but unfortunately it just didn't work for me. You'll probably go into this 18 rated film with hopes of experiencing a few nice gory and brutal scenes. In which case, it won't disappoint. Gillian Anderson proves herself yet again to be a superb actress that not only can bring you into the story line, but also let you into the feelings that her character is.
First of all this is a foreign movie, British. And the revenge plotting starts. I am glad that the director took the opportunity to make this film gritty and yet very realistic. However, she is informed that her father has passed away and she travels back to the countryside to visit her fathers home. However, a van stops and a gang brutally assaults Adam and rapes Alice. Personally i quite enjoyed the slightly comedic satire that ran through some of the scenes, and i think Danny Dyer helped with this. Storyline: Closure 2007 After the installation of an alarm system by the twentythree year old lowclass Adam in her fancy upper class apartment, the sophisticated owner Alice invites him to go with her in her boss opening house boring party in the countryside.
Ultimately this movie is a hollow experience. As the party was out in the country. It doesn't engage the audience as it should and doesn't appear to know what exactly it's trying to say. Genres: Drama Romance Thriller War. What's with the rapists's daughter? Photogenic he may be, but when it comes to performing, he is never less than completely pants.
The evening ends badly, however, when a road-rage incident on the way home results in the couple being brutally attacked by three men; Adam receives a right-royal kicking that leaves him blind in one eye, and Alice is left walking funny after a brutal gang rape. Hmm, wonder what the deleted scenes were like? Adam is quite happy to let sleeping dogs lie, but Alice, armed with this new information wants revenge. But then, Alice finds out the identity of one of the attackers. I had heard a lot about this movie, although most of what I'd heard revolved around a scene near the end of the film involving Anderson's use of a gun barrel. A lavish country party that should have been the best night of their lives unexpectedly begets a shocking cycle of violence for a confident career woman and her handsome young love interest in this brutal and unforgiving thriller starring Gillian Anderson and Danny Dyer.
