It's hard to resist the temptation of loving someone for the sake of being with someone, so I think you are really brave to wait for the right one to come along. People don't want to be alone.

A very relatable love story.. in the heart of town
I would say that The Leap Year exceeded my expectation as a local production. With very artistic camera shooting, beautiful scenes, in the heart of town, along with good casts and a simple story nicely written.
Though I must say that the show can be quite a drag, yet at the same time, there wasn't enough details to fill in the gaps, I personally find the entire movie pretty enjoyable and it was able to keep me looking forward to the scenes ahead.
The show has a nice blend of music, sung by Corrine May, lyrics and scenes matches and its very well picked and played. That is a PLUS to the show. For those who enjoys a simple love story, with artistic style in directing and a relate-able love story of a typical love-no love with light-hearted endings, this is a must watch show! This will be THE movie to watch for couples, especially on the 29th of February.
