An engaging story, superbly acted
3 August 2004 | by See all my reviews

This movie is not only touching, funny, heart-wrenching and uplifting but its surprise ending will leave you reeling. The wonderful cast includes the understated Kevin Whately as the well-meaning but totally dull Hurst, the unglamorous but very attractive Lesley Manville as the reawakened Annie, and the masterful Kevin Stott as the irascible, irreverent Mike. Mike is the antithesis of the Hollywood hunk but his charisma and sense of humor is such that he is utterly lovable and irresistible (especially to Annie). A great production of a wonderful story and without a maudlin Hollywood ending. This is a thoroughly enjoyable movie, and if available in your area, rent it tonight. Cheers!
