I knew a girl named Tamsin once. She was the little sister of someone I worked with and she was a stunningly beautiful young lady. To counteract that, I also knew a person named Kristy who looked like warmed over Robbert Loggia. The world is filled with this Yin and Yang-like conflict of wondrous visage and sensational deformity.

intelligence and a yearning for something beyond the emptiness of her daily
life. Tamsin (Ms. Blunt) is well-educated, spoiled, and cynical. As they are
complete opposites, each is wary of the other’s differences when they first
meet, but this coolness soon melts into mutual fascination, amusement, and
Adding further volatility is Mona’s older brother Phil
(Paddy Considine), who has renounced his criminal past for religious fervor –
which he tries to impose upon his sister. Mona, however, is experiencing her own
rapture. “We must never be parted,” Tamsin intones to Mona…but can Mona
completely trust her?
