Family Life and then some.01 November 2011

Sam Mendes persuaded Kevin Spacey to be in this by saying Annette Bening had agreed already, and then he did the reverse with her. The result is a powerful drama, with elements of thriller. Quite cutting edge the year it was made. Well worth watching if you've missed it so far.
