While the latter taxon is comparable in size to the larger tyrannosaurines, the Nasals rugose; Frontals with caudal end expanded laterally; Supratemporal.

Hannah suddenly realises that she can be safe and happy with these people.

Also, I think if you are going to aim for grittiness, you need to be realistic above all else. And the idea that Hannah, a woman with a strong Christian faith, has no friends to whom she can turn is pretty unlikely.
Has she never been to church?
Never met anyone there? I think the plot of the film needed her to be friendless. Olivia Colman is wonderful as Hannah, although a Hannah completely without sisters, as you point out.

But isn't it all a front with her? She's a liar and a coward to herself, shying away from the truth of her relationship at home, cowering in shame from the abuse and covering up her alcoholism with a veneer of religion. Just as she goes to the charity shop for work, she may go to church in the way that Peter Mullan's Joseph goes to the pub — to sit alone. That singalong scene is a false note, I agree, but I think the film's saying: Joseph's is violence and rage, Hannah's is humility and fear.
The film's tension and release is seeing how these two come together. Would you rather it was all lovely and tea-cosy, such as in Made in Dagenham, or art-directed like a shop window, such as in Angela's Ashes or The Color Purple? Ha — I never really care about art direction I know, I am the worst film reviewer ever.
I care most about the story, always, and so long as that rings true, I can live with anything else. But no, I didn't find her to be a liar, and I didn't see her faith as a veneer. I think she gave a tremendous portrayal of a woman so paralysed by constant low-level and sometimes high-level abuse that she was simply shuttered down.
Paradoxically, I think the power of all their performances was the film's undoing, in a way. Once again, I don't want to spoil the ending, which makes it tricky to argue this point, but here goes. I think the sheer molten horribleness of James Hannah's husbandthe ill-controlled aggression of Joseph and the martyred suffering of Hannah lead the film to a point where, to go all Aristotle for a moment, the desis is too tightly bound.
The tying-up of the plot of a tragedy desis gets to a point where we long for the lusis sudden unravelling of it all.

And in this film, the performances make that unravelling almost impossible, so they have to go for, "One year later…", which again seems cliched to me. Even the honourable Ken Loach has sometimes been guilty of fetishising the working man. Ricky Gervais's Cemetery Junction was like that, and many sub-Boyz n the Hood gangsta-style movies, too. I don't feel that with Paddy's film at all.
Here, all the characters want out of their situations and it's all observed with tender compassion by the only God cinema ever knows, the director. If the chattering or twittering classes like me are guilty of peeking through the muslin curtains at how the other half lives, then it's only the general complicity involved in any viewing — I don't know what it's like in space, but I believe the world of Alien, for example; same with hard-scrabble westerns or those little slumdogs or the favela kids in City of God.Tyrannosaur ( 2011 ) - The Ending Scene
When properly done, you only ever end up caring for a character. British social realism is a strong force in world cinema — when Karel Reisz and Lindsay Anderson did it in the 50s and 60s, it was considered "good for you". Little Coelophysis was the canonical Triassic dinosaur; the huge sauropods and theropods of the Morrison Formation represented the Jurassic, and a Cretaceous Tyrannosaurus versus Triceratops face-off ultimately capped off the succession.

Diplodocus, Apatosaurus, Allosaurus, Stegosaurus and their neighbors roamed western North America about million years ago. This slice of time falls in the latter portion of the Jurassic.
The traditional representatives of the latest Cretaceous scene—Tyrannosaurus and Triceratops—did not evolve until about 67 million years ago. About 83 million years separated Apatosaurus from Tyrannosaurus and Allosaurus from Triceratops. The so-called Age of Mammals—which began when the non-avian dinosaurs were wiped out—has been going on for about 66 million years.

Less time separates us from Tyrannosaurus rex than separated T. Consider how much life has changed in the past 66 million years. Saber-fanged, knobbly-headed herbivores such as Uintatheriumlemur-like primates called adapiformsrazor-jawed carnivores known as creodonts and many other strange forms proliferated and disappeared.
Even lineages familiar to us today, such as horses, rhinos and elephants, evolved and diversified and are now represented by just remnants of what once existed.
