The UK version is edited to obtain a 15 rating, and these changes appear to have been incorporated into all release prints (aside from the French versions mentioned above).

You don't see many films like this any more. This film has a very old fashioned feel about it . Tamara Drew is a delightful movie about people , personalities and relationships and i really liked it.
What more could you want in a woman. Tamara Drew is young rich and beautiful to boot ( and she's a Charlton Supporter ) well Gemma Arterton is! . The problem is she has all the men lusting after her and Tamara is not so great with her choices of fella's.
This is a very well acted movie. Arteton ans Bill Camp stand out and It looks great to. It has the feel of a stage play but it does work well on the big screen too.
Well worth a watch.
