User Reviews

The Sunday Times (11Jan01): He ([Brian Cox]) creates a portrait of restless, desperate failure. This is a ruthlessly accurate and thoughtfully compassionate performance. It is an astonishing achievement for a writer in his twenties to draw such a chillingly accurate portrait of middle-aged despair. Dublin Carol is written with enormous skill, but it is really only a brilliant drawing of a single face.
