A gossipy Zoe Heller novel is transformed into a sleek, taut, cerebral thriller by Patrick Marber’s screenplay, a Philip Glass score and a right catfight between bitter, lonely teacher Barbara (Judi Dench) and the victim of her infatuation, arty-chic Sheba (Cate Blanchett).

When Sheba cheats on Bill Nighy with a student, Babs has her fate in her greedy palm. A quality team turn soap to strychnine.
