Time Out says

A low-key tale, funded by Granada TV, of a woman's struggle to rebuild her life after husband Steve, a mechanic, is brain-damaged in a motorcycle accident. Alison (Horrocks) has to fight for compensation and fend off over-protective parents, but she also has to stop Steve (Stevenson) initiating food fights with the young son whose mental age he now shares. Before long, she's considering what she wants. Not without clichés, but the performances are unfussy and a Kay Mellor's screenplay avoids 'issue drama' dreariness.

A poignant film with good performances which left a long lasting impression on me. The theme of having to accept that someone has changed completely although the outer physical frame is the same is well portrayed. Now my mother has had a stroke and retreated into her own world I find it easier to handle having seen this film a few years ago.
