  • This IC Wales article talks about Helen McCrory’s and Damian Lewis’s new home and life as parents upon the recent birth of their daughter Manon.
  • This Observer article about the British Independent Film Awards says “…Damian Lewis and Helen McCrory, looking magnificent (both of them) despite only giving birth to their daughter Manon less than three months ago.”
  • This DVD Times review of Keane says:

    “…Damian Lewis gives a phenomenal performance that should have gained him an Oscar nomination had this film been more widely shown. Given that he’s onscreen almost throughout, it’s a demanding role, but he carries it off superbly…

    You have to be grateful that there are filmmakers like Lodge Kerrigan about, even if they have to work on tiny budgets and have difficulties financing their work. Kerrigan’s films take you places that are out of your normal comfort zone, but they reward the searching out. Keane is just such a film, which showcases a commanding performance from Damian Lewis…”
