Above average British movie
19 April 1999 | by (Tampa, FL) – See all my reviews

Another well acted British movie with a very good story line.

An average guy with an average job meets an average girl and they fall in love. He develops MS early in their relationship and while this causes roadblocks in the development of their relationship they are able to overcome them, along with mutual infidelities and a very difficult breakup followed by a touching reunion to produce a realistic ending. His friends offer the comic relief to make this movie not as bleak as it would be.

The heavy Scottish accent make this a perfect video for closed caption.
