Charming film
23 September 2003 | by (Halifax, Canada) – See all my reviews

This is a lovely film about an overachieving girl named Phoebe who is weeks away from graduating from university. She has done almost everything from "foraging for wild mushrooms" to getting a "kayak certification", but has never had a boyfriend.

This is not by any means your average cheesy romantic comedy. It is modest in visual style, yet perfectly appropriate. Attention has been paid to Phoebe's many retro outfits, to a great script, and to perfect direction to the actors whose manner perfectly matches the tone of the film.

This film will leave you enchanted, content, and smiling. Andrea Dorfman has already created a signature style between this and her last film "Parsley Days".
