Beguiling Installment of 1st Love
26 January 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Stephen Archer teaches English as a Second Language (ESL), yet longs to become a famous science fiction writer. His favorite author is Even Gorley-Peters, the "Shakespeare of science fiction," so Stephen takes his ESL class on a field trip to the country and stops at the author's estate. While there he meets his hero's daughter, Natasha Gorley-Peters, who's recovering from a broken heart. Soon love blossoms between Stephen and Natasha, yet Stephen seems somewhat more preoccupied with her father, who turns out to be a curmudgeon.

This is a quirky and appealing little film that offers interesting characters as well as sublime scenery of the English countryside. Most of all, it's enjoyable to watch as Natasha wonders about the intentions of Stephen and whether he's more interested in getting closer to her or getting her father to read his manuscript.
