Came to this via hunting down other works of Jodie Whittaker, saw Paddy Considine in it and loaded it up.

I've seen Considine here and there, I'm going to have to look up more of his work.

This is an acute brain injury (probably aneurysm-related) rather than progressive traumatic brain injury - which is just as devastating - very believable performance by Considine and the writing/ dialogue/ situations is solid.

Considine wrote and directed this, too. Bravo.
