This psychological thriller is based on the prize-winning 1994 novel of the same name by William Trevor. It features a shot of Elaine Cassidy walking alone beside a river with a Centro-liveried Class 323 EMU passing behind. This was filmed in Aston next to the River Tame as it passes underneath the A38M and the Birmingham to Lichfield ‘Cross-City’ railway line.
