Among Giants

Pete Postlethwaite hires a woman to join his crew of electrical-tower painters working off the books in Yorkshire, and of course she?s trouble. Rachel Griffiths plays the understated femme fatale, a nomadic rock climber who intrigues more than one of the hard-drinking daredevils. The often nuanced emotions and sexual behavior of the characters in this skillfully constructed drama make the schmaltzy moments credible, but the high-stakes romance is very nearly trivialized by some symbolism that seems both heavy-handed and inevitable. Sam Miller directed a screenplay by Simon Beaufoy (The Full Monty); with James Thornton.
