The Independent journalist Tamara Drewe returns to Dorset, Ewedown, to sell the Winnard Farm that belonged to her deceased mother.

When the two girls are hiding up a tree having let down the tyres on Nicholas's Range Rover, they take a picture of him kissing Tamara. They are a good 15ft off the ground and equally far from the subjects of the picture. However, when the photo is sent to his wife's phone she looks at a picture which is clearly taken at ground level and from a few feet away (or with a very good zoom lens). See more »
The version of the film released at the Cannes Film Festival 2010 and in France theatrically and on DVD differs from the theatrical version released worldwide. The differences are the changing of a line in a scene between Jody and Casey in Tamara's bedroom as Jody comments on Tamara being "a lucky c***", instead of "a lucky cow", and also with the inclusion of explanatory captions at the close of the film elaborating on events which take place after the film's timeline:
"Hardy's Aphrodite" by Dr. Glen McCreavy MFA, PhD received rave reviews. It only sold 6,002 copies.
Tamara Drewe's forthcoming novel (about a writers' retreat) has already been optioned for a movie.
After a spell in rehab, Ben Sergeant wrote five tracks for his new album, including stellar hit "Jail-Bait Jody".
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.
