How she got so much praise I don't know. Basically a 17 year old chav playing a 15 year old chav. Not acting.
The plot such as it was, was paper thin and the whole thing felt like an episode of Eastenders on holiday.
For me 2/5 is pushing it.
For the record I thought Red Road was better but not by much.
To be fair, when I said that everything about Fassbender was all wrong, I wasn't suggesting he was badly cast. It was more to do with the whole sleazy charmer thing he had going on...
I know what you mean about the lead, though. I didn't think she was that great either but the younger sister, on the other hand...
I think, all in all, it was a 3.5 (maybe a 3.75) for me.
And I totally want to see Red Road.
