Starring: Laura Fraser, Richard E Grant
Friday 17 December 2010
This British thriller has all the accoutrements of suspense but regrettably not the actual thing.
Laura Fraser perma-frowns distractedly as a research student kept awake at night by voices, though she can't be sure if they're real. She finds cold comfort from all around her – a creepy cardiologist boss (Richard E Grant) and a musician boyfriend (Adam Fenton), who overdoes it with the eyeliner.
Richard Bracewell drapes a meandering plotline with dialogue that never quite sounds like people talking to one another, and in places where no one else seems to live. The explanation of those voices, by the way, turns out to be insultingly simple: maybe Laura just needed an ear test?
