i love this movie!!!
3 June 2005 | by MoOvieLoverSee all my reviews

I absolutely love this movie! Hope Davis is amazing, she always gives great performances in all the films that she is in and this is just another one of this performances. The lead male is this film is also very good, and come to think of it the whole cast is really excellent. this is film is about a lonely woman (davis) and the main guy, and them almost meeting each other but never actually doing so. This movie sort of reminded me of the film serendipity, but this is a much better film, with more interesting and much more believable characters. All in all i feel that this is a movie well worth seeing because everyone can relate to the loneliness in the film.
