Storyline

Jenny Seagrove plays a widow who is defying her friends attempts to find her a new parter. Charles Dance is part of her circle of friends and decides that he is the one for her. He is also in the fortunate position that he is her dentist who just happens to use hypnosis on his patients. Having no luck using conventional methods to win her affections, he resorts to hypnosis which has unforseen and amusing results. Antony Edwards is a failing sports psychologist who gets caught up in the events through a series of chance meetings and the unpredictable results of the hypnosis.

Nice People, Nice Film
7 November 2000 | by (England) – See all my reviews

A really well made British film with a thoughtful storyline,and a fine cast. Good to see that fine actress Jenny Seagrove in a role well suited to her and played to perfection........wish she were my mum, but I'm too old. One of those rare movies of today that end making the viewer feel inspired and genuinely happy.
