It's on BBC2 now, is it worth watching?
I'll give my verdict later.
certainly no !
I was disappointed, because I'd expected a Ken Loach/ Mike Leigh style examination of a hidden section of society. Instead, it was bizarrely glossy, shot like Ocean's Eleven or something, and very unconvincing. The love story was weak, and there seemed to be too much emphasis on getting a lot of action in the plot, when it would have worked better as a simpler mood piece.
but I thought it was good.
Once again, squirrel is wrong.
