Excellent and intelligent drama
21 July 2014 | by (Birmingham, England) – See all my reviews

Having You is a small UK drama about a man about to marry his infertile girlfriend, who suddenly finds out he already has a child. It raises an interesting moral dilemma, should he stay with the girl he loves or potentially lose her and instead get to know the child he thought he would never have.

A strong cast helps featuring the beautiful Anna Friel and the always excellent Philip Davis all help to make the intelligent script sparkle. Andrew Buchan is very likable and evokes real sympathy as the man left in a lose lose situation. Interspersed with some realistic and at times touching drama there are plenty of funny lines. It is one of the rare films that gets the balance between drama and comedy spot on. An added bonus is an excellent soundtrack that fits the film perfectly.

This is one of those small gems that you occasionally come across unexpectedly. I found this to be an engrossing, believable and enjoyable film with a good pay off. Highly recommended.
