Goofs

Henry tries to cook with pot by adding buds to a soup. Cooking in this way would make you sick, not high. The THC has to be extracted from the weed (usually by simmering in butter then cooled, which can then be used to cook with). The way Henry uses it, the THC would cook away, and then remaining plant material would be bitter enough to make him sick. See more »

The Girl: [narrating] I've read in a book once that 67% of people die when nobody's looking. What I never could find out... is how many people lived while nobody's watching. But I guess they just don't print shit like that.

Confusing but Touching
9 September 2017 | by solriSee all my reviews

I chanced upon The Book of Love while channel-switching, saw Maisie Williams, looked for the repeat and watched it. I very nearly didn't because the synopsis made it look like a Hallmark production (bereaved architect heals himself by helping troubled teenager build a raft to sail round the world) but I thought, "What the hell, it's Arya" and watched it. I'm glad I did, because although it contains a slew of "heartwarming" clichés, it plays around with them in a very quirky way, to the extent that it's almost but not quite a satire on the genre. But there's more than playing around with clichés: the relationship between the two main characters is lovely, and there are some thought-provoking moments, though it's easy to skip over them.
