Dull romantic film
13 October 2006 | by (Reigate, England) – See all my reviews

This film is really nothing special. I watched it because it came free with the Daily Mail and stars Tara Fitzgerald in the title role. Poppy Carew is a lively woman who, no sooner than having pushed her cheating boyfriend into a canal for cheating, sees her loving father die in front of her after a laughing fit. It will come as no surprise to anyone who saw Camomile Lawn that it features nudity from Tara Fitzgerald (about half way through the film). Its the kind of thing you tune into on a Sunday evening when there's nothing else on and you can't change the channel because you've lost the role. Fitzgerald makes the film watchable as a spirited woman who inherits her dead fathers estate and wealth and is pursued by several young bachelors. Lookout for Joseph Fiennes who plays a pig farmer.
