Storyline

Journalist Amy Pearce's dreams come true when she is able to transfer from her newspaper job in Toronto to London to work at its sister newspaper, the London Daily Post. The transfer was made possible by the newspapers' wealthy owner, Lord Oldenberg. Life in London does not initially turn out to be what Amy had envisioned. The Post's editor-in-chief, Max Hardman, places Amy in what is called the Fem-Post section of the newspaper - the women's issue section - under the direction of the limelight craving section editor, Jemima Whitfield Pennington Green. Jemima initially gives Amy no writing assignments, and when she eventually does, she takes the credit by inserting her own byline. And Amy hates her co-worker, Billy Marshall, the award-winning business reporter, who encourages her to go home if she doesn't like the work. Amy's personal life is only marginally better. Through her unemployed flatmates Poppy Young and Sami Rahim, Amy meets Edward Walpole, a seemingly dashing Brit. Amy, ... Written by Huggo

23 March 2010 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Unfortunately due to a timing screw up I only saw the last half, which is a real shame because it is a delightful movie with both romantic and dramatic tones.

The story is basically a love story. Canadian girl goes to England to work as a reporter, meets another reporter she hates and eventually falls for him after having to deal with several British upper crust cads.

The lead, Liane Balaban, is a Toronto born and raised young woman certainly shone in the part. She certainly made the movie come alive for me.

A fun watch or great date movie if you're 40 years younger than I am.
