loved this movie! J Field and felicity Jones did an awesome job and have brought back romance to a movie..clean and tastefully done. henry's character was witty and you can't help being drawn to him and Catherine's character is complete innocence...unfortunately for me, i watched it too many times,,thank you for such a romantic, witty, and innocent movie..look forward to seeing more work by these actors, although in Canada we don't seem to get as much as i would like..good luck to these very talented actors. i would have loved to see more of the countryside of the movie, apparently it was filmed in ireland,would have loved to see more od the beautiful buildings such as woodston.
