Solicitor James Manning (Tom Wilkinson) thinks aristocrat Bill Bule (Rupert Everett) is a hit-and-run killer. James’ wife Anne (Emily Watson) confesses she is the guilty party in the accident, and is also having an affair with Bill. The emotional and legal tangle is further complicated when James tries to lie to the police.
Quality acting and writing and appropriately understated direction, but a touch too polite for its own good.
