A great, virtuoso calling card for both Hardy and writer/director Knight.
 
Isn't that the film where everything takes place in the car?

Genius. How to create drama and get deep into one person's life. Just shows you, one doesn't need one fancy scene after the next to build a good story. Simple interactions between people do the same.
 
Yes, that's right. Budget £2m, tiny by today's standards. Could almost have been a radio play... altho it wouldn't have been noticed...
