One expects a great performance fron Judi Dench and this one does not disappoint. However I found the plot a bit complex to be dealt with satisfactorily in an hour and a half movie. I would have liked more emphasis on the trial and legal aspects of this story which were completely skipped over. Was the toilet scene really necessary? That baffled me. I thought the Andrew Simpson was remarkable in the role of the 15 yr. Old boy and I think he has a bright future. That a boy would find an older woman attractive is believable but the confidence with which he pursued her seemed to me like a bit of a stretch. In short, I would have preferred a slightly longer movie that would have allowed for more development of the many complex relationships that sometimes were only hinted at I. E. Cate Blanchette and her mother.
