Frequently Bought Together
Suzy (Joanne Froggatt) is a British soldier, born and bred, but fitting back into civilian life after fighting in Iraq isn't easy. Haunted by the responsibility she feels for the death of an Iraqi child, she becomes obsessed with the safety of her own daughter, feeling the need to protect her against a threat that doesn't seem to exist. As Suzy's paranoia builds, her behaviour becomes more and more erratic, until finally, she puts her own child in serious danger.

Joanna Froggat is excellent and well supported by a strong cast - having the soldier in question a female brings all sorts of other issues into the film as well.
To say this film is enjoyable is not accurate as with many war films (such as The Deer Hunter) it is disturbing to watch but it is a film that needs to made and seen and you will be glad you did.
After only a few minutes I'd surrendered to the film. It had grabbed me by the throat and wouldn't let go. It looked serious, as was its subject matter and the acting being of a seriously high standard too.
We've all seen The Fourth of July and many of the others that attempt to spotlight the after scars of war. Supremo Brit, now Hollywood, director Paul Greengrass made his first feature 'Resurrected' in 1989 starring David Thewlis and was about a British soldier dealing with his demons around the time of the Falklands conflict. Never heard of it? It remains as well known as this one currently does (hardly at all).
The equivalent here is a young female soldier just come back from Iraq and who had witnessed an innocent Iraqi child get killed. The same age roughly as her own little girl and unavoidably, as the flashbacks show, the parallels are obvious. Her partner, an aggressive, paranoid and volatile soldier, also having seen action in Iraq and father of their little girl, gives Suzy (an excellent and film, but not TV, newcomer) Joanne Froggatt a REALLY hard time. Not just coping with local thieves but they also with the well - and not so well - meaning friends and relatives, who are either stifling, or insensitive.
The cracks start to show; a fellow serviceman Suzy worked alongside with on the front line is threatened by Mark (the partner - an also excellent Mark Raido) when he, after an invitation from Suzy, is found drinking beer at their home and chatting to her when Mark comes back in a foul mood one night.Read more ›
The acting was fine but the characters were stereotypical and the message predictable and heavy handed.
British soldiers just don't tend to look or act like that. Not saying they're Angels, they're just not like they're shown here.
they didn't even go to the trouble of getting the beret to look right, which implies they didn't spend much time around squaddies or pay much attention to how they actually are.

I bought this because of the incredible performance of this star as Elizabeth McGovern's maid in Downton Abbey - I wanted to see her in another type of role. Read morePublished on 2 July 2012 by John R. Aldridge
