Beggars Bride Enjoying This TV Movie
13 April 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Very good TV movie enjoy it every time I've seen it on BBCAMERICA it introduced me to Keeley Hawes and her acting. Since then I've searched for other movies she been in. I've found many that I have enjoyed and would love to own. Since I"m new to British TV movies it's been a pleasure to search and find actors that I've never heard of before and see the work they have done in UK. Keeley happens to be one of them and this TV movie happens to capture a certain feel maybe it'a a woman thing but I have enjoyed it has much as Notting Hill and other romance movies that are based along the same theme. Keep making good movies Keeley
