The film was very well-received despite limited release, and it finally gives the incredible Creator/BrianCox a starring role. The rest of the cast consists mostly of [[HeyItsThatGuy that guys]], including [[BandOfBrothers Damien Lewis,]] [[FlashForward2009 Joseph Fiennes,]] Creator/DominicCooper, Creator/LiamCunningham,[[Film/TheLifeAquaticWithSteveZissou Seu Jorge]] and [[Film/{{Underworld}} Steven Mackintosh]].
