Storyline

Yorkshire writer Kate finds out her biological clock is ticking down the same day that her husband leaves her. To get over the financial crisis this creates she takes in car-dealer Dave. He's homeless as Kate's husband has moved in with his wife. This leaves the problem of how to get promptly pregnant. Surely not with increasingly interesting Dave. They can't even agree on a baby's name - he thinks Fanny is silly and she finds Elvis, well, inconceivable. Written by Jeremy Perkins {J-26}

Absolutely marvelous film. I visited Hebden Bridge and saw some of the film locations, beautiful! Lovely town and people.

Special mentioning about Ray Winstones role. I think he did a great job and as he has been called before "Sex on legs.." I agree. The story is very romantic, and for someone like me who likes English scenery and accents this is very interesting discovery. This was the reason for me to choose Hebden Bridge as my holiday destination and it was a perfect choice.

Jennifer Saunders has a great role as well. Also few gay aspects are very typical for Hebden "Town of lesbians" Bridge.

Worth seeing. I recommend!
