Storyline

Desperate to be married, Fran was supposed to be on his honeymoon. Instead he's single and slouching around London, entrenched in a bro-mance with his two best friends. At 29, Fran was sure he'd offered his fiancée everything, but she rejected his heart and his two-bedroom flat in Kentish Town, and called it all off four weeks before their wedding. Fran is convinced that she'll see the error of her ways...until he bumps into her with her new boyfriend, and any dreams he might have had of reconciliation are dashed. He has no choice but to move on and try to meet someone new. Meanwhile, his sometimes neurotic best friends, Ben and Jon, are suffering the opposite of Fran's predicament - their girlfriends are mad about them, but the guys appear lukewarm about their girls and are forever on the lookout for someone else. Whether trawling for talent at a Rabbi's house, being mistaken as part of a gay couple or negotiating advances from his lovelorn neighbour upstairs, Fran's search for ... Written by Alicia Brown

A rare British treat!
11 December 2010 | by See all my reviews

This film is a genuine discovery, a little gem of a film. Playing something like a British take on the American Indie film Honeymooner mixes belly laughs with genuine emotion and heart. I was particularly impressed by Col Spector's strong grip on tone, the film avoiding the high gloss of Hollywood in place of an honest low budget simplicity which really draws you into what is an understated but surprisingly engaging character driven story.

The performances are strong across the board, Gerard Kearns and Chris Coghill shining in particular. I saw the film at the Cuculorous Film Festival and people were literally falling off their seats laughing. It's a real compliment to the director that Honeymooner's moments of sadness also hit home. I really hope the film gets a deserved UK cinema release. Thoroughly recommended!
