When ADRIAN, a handsome and charming guest, arrives and seems to take an interest in Lexie, she thinks all her problems are solved. But she misreads the situation and is soon reeling, believing her romantic dream has slipped away, maybe forever. After a series of hilarious mishaps and a reality check or two, Lexie opens her heart and eyes to see that love may be a lot closer than she thought. Written by Anonymous

Relative Happiness is Relatively OK.....
4 April 2015 | by See all my reviews

My girlfriend and I just watched "Relative Happiness" here in Halifax, Nova Scotia. The local scenery and music provided wonderful eye and ear candy, especially with the colourful autumn foliage.

My girlfriend read the book and found that the movie pretty much followed the same storyline. I hadn't read the book, but read another of Leslie Crewe's books and could see the similarities in the writing style. Easy reading, and easy watching. I very much enjoyed the music used in the movie. I found the acting, and directing to be so so.

All in all I was glad we went to the see the movie. It was not one of my Canadian favourites (like Away From Her was), but that being said, it wasn't a waste of time or money. We both found it to be a nice matinée, but not one that either of us would consider to be a "must see movie".

Very Canadian.... But that's OK.

For me it gets a 7/10
