Light as a feather
3 May 1999 | by SironaSee all my reviews

Robert Lindsay tapped lightly through this story of a man who finds love when he least expects to and then almost loses it when he fails to value love as he should. Molly Ringwald was charming as the young woman he loves. John Gielgud, as the cunning Grand Old Man, makes promises he too easily forgets and sets up the plot for the mayhem to follow. I thought this film had the feel of an Ealing Studios comedy from the 1950's. I only regret that there weren't more hazards to befall Robert Lindsay, who can meltdown on screen funnier than almost anyone else.
