“It’s easy for films that deal with the onset of sudden disabilities to go wrong. Step too far one way and you’re mired in mawkishness, move too far the other and you risk making everything seem clinical and voyeuristic. Writer/director Bill Clark – whose screenplay is based on the real-life story of British couple Tom and Nicola Ray – is too be congratulated for treading carefully, showing restraint and empathy in his depiction of a family devastated by the after effects of blood poisoning (septicaemia) without glossing over the challenges they face.   Clark has crafted a film with restrained resonance that highlights a devastating disease while remembering that those who are dealing with it are what’s most important.(Eye for Film)
