Beautifully written, wryly observed and well acted
6 November 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

It's rare in a "rom com" to have a leading lady who does not try to look at least 20 years younger than she really is! It is rarer still these days to find a film where the central character is a lady of a "certain age". Fiona Gillies pulls this off with enormous aplomb. This film delivers class acting with a well written and observed screen play. London is depicted as a working city which most of us recognise, rather than the "tourist" version we mostly see in other movies.

Although at times our credibility was somewhat stretched, the film carried us with it and was a thoroughly enjoyable. The soundtrack was particularly good. Look out for the scene in the park where Amanda tries to impress Dan and gets into a tangle! Pure comedy.
