Rive/Harlequin Presents Extra author Heidi Rice finds a compulsive and compelling romance in the wreckage of this violent action drama.
Ok, public health warning aside, I have to say that this film really moved me. It's beautifully shot, and the faltering romance - between getaway driver Ryan Gosling and prisoner's wife Carey Mulligan - manages to be both subtle and yet wildly erotic, despite the fact that in the course of the film all these two actually have is one kiss. But boy, is that some kiss.
A film I would definitely recommend, if you don't mind a not-so-happy-ending, and you've got a cast-iron stomach!
Heidi's latest book, On the First Night of Christmas, is currently out in the US, the UK and Oz simultaneously. And she's doing a happy dance about that. Come have a chat on her blog, her Facebook page, her website or on Twitter (@HeidiRomRice).
