The Press Reviews

  • More proof that Richard Curtis's style of comedy-drama is very difficult to imitate. Full Review

  • Don't come looking for social realism. This is an unapologetically fluffy film. Full Review

  • Diane Keaton and Brendan Gleeson are an odd couple in this genteel charmer about a widow who champions a man facing eviction from his Hampstead Heath shack. Full Review

  • This slight, modestly sweet and mildly charming affair squarely aimed at the older cinemagoer is just the bill for those seniors' matinées where the ticket comes with a cuppa and a biscuit. Full Review

  • These yin and yang performers complement each other nicely, like tangy rhubarb and sweet, thick custard. It's just a shame that the vehicle which has brought them together is so insipid. Full Review

  • Diane Keaton and Brendan Gleeson aren't an obvious match; despite their combined lovability, this slender romcom doesn't prove otherwise. Full Review

  • Watching it is akin to witnessing Maggie Smith's The Van slowly rear-end Richard Curtis's Notting Hill: a cringing slow-mo car crash best viewed between your hands. Full Review
