  • No walk in the park, Tyrannosaur is a character study steeped in the British (and Irish) tradition of social realism, and the experience of watching this skillfully made film is, well, exhausting. show more

  • The grim drama is undeniably punishing, but Considine's screenplay laces in moments of warm human contact that puncture the harshness like delicate grace notes. show more

  • This isn't the kind of movie that even has hope enough to contain a message. There is no message, only the reality of these wounded personalities. show more
