Like Ken Loach’s upcoming Route Irish, this persuasive drama from writer/ director Brian Welsh lays bare the psychological impact of the Iraq war on British combatants returning home.
Refreshingly, the focus here is a female soldier, Suzy (Joanne Froggatt), who struggles to readjust to life with a volatile squaddie husband (Mel Raido) and their eight-year-old daughter (Chloe Jayne Wilkinson).
Welsh cranks up the unease as a flashback-troubled Suzy grows increasingly paranoid.
Anchored by Froggatt’s powerful performance, this is stark social realism steeped in honesty and humanity
