A woman has to deal with feelings of grief and guilt after her husband and son die in a terrorist attack. A young London mother (Michelle Williams) waves her husband and son goodbye as they head off to see a local football match. As soon as they're gone, she entertains local news reporter Jasper Black (Ewan MacGregor), with whom she's been having an affair. As the two begin making love, a news flash on the television informs them that a suicide bomber has attacked the stadium which her husband and child were attending. In a blind panic, the woman heads for the football ground, where she runs into her late husband's boss, police officer Terence Butcher (Matthew Macfadyen). In the following weeks, as she attempts to put her life back in order, she's introduced to, and befriends, a young boy (Sidney Johnston) whose father was involved in the attack.

This movie takes a route that's quite different from the book, which (I thought) concentrated more on the erosion of civil liberties by the government and how it manipulates and destroys people's lives, while the film is more about the personal grief of a single person. I found these differences made the original story almost irrelevant to the tale being told in the movie. The story of personal grief told in the film could easily have been accomplished by way of an original screenplay, without adapting the book at all.
Michelle Williams is outstanding in this film, easily the best thing about it. Her accent is very convincing and more that once I got teary watching her performance. The scene where Ewan McGregor's character Jasper visits her in the hospital was particularly moving. McGregor is very good too but I felt his character was sidelined about halfway through and by the end was largely irrelevant.
As for the direction, I thought it at times was too sentimental. For example, the flashbacks of her son on the beach were used far too much. I felt as though I was being clobbered and at one point I said out loud, 'Yes, I get it! Give it a rest!'. I also found the overuse of sentimental music during these scenes irritating. I think this is because I was expecting a different story - ie the one in the book. In the end, the finished film was worthy but not 'incendiary' in the way the book was.
As you can probably expect from the synopsis of which I have provided above, it is a very emotional film, and the beautiful Michelle Williams turns out a brilliant performance.
Despite the negative reviews it received upon it's release, 'Incendiary' is definitely worth watching as far as I'm concerned, and really, it is Michelle's acting which is almost reason enough to do so.
The DVD contains bonus interviews with actors Ewan McGregor, Michelle Williams, and Matthew MacFadyen separately, along with the producers Anand Tucker and Andy Paterson, and the film's director Sharon Maguire.
Note about the accent spoken in the film: Of course I recognised the Cockney slang. A welcoming change from any American chatter. While English is not my native speech I fully understand British accents, whereas I always need to use subtitles when watching an American film. With EastEnders being my favourite soap, watching Incendiay almost felt 'like home'.
The film kept me interested and wondering what would happen next. I really loved Michelle Williams character who at first seemed quite a flirt then showed her true colors as a mature woman willing to stand up for what she felt and not take the easy way out.
Its well shot, the script is superb and keeps you watching throughtout, you dont wander or get bored and its sudden change part way in is shocking. it is often hard going and very emotional especially if you have children or have been in this situation yourself which im sad to say people have been now but every angle is covered with sensitive care and never once apologises for being harsh or hard to watch. well acted by everyone and some surpising twists in human emotion.
a high quality classy film but dont expect to feel good after. superb and will recommend to all
