Things get even more intense when Jack's mother, Margaret (Judi Dench) realises that they two fall for each other...
This film is about two love encounters (not one, but two!!) that take place in the least expected situations. It is hear-warming, entertaining, sweet and touching. If you've got tired of heavy action and special effects, why not give this one a go?
