Storyline

Desperate to be married, Fran was supposed to be on his honeymoon. Instead he's single and slouching around London, entrenched in a bro-mance with his two best friends. At 29, Fran was sure he'd offered his fiancée everything, but she rejected his heart and his two-bedroom flat in Kentish Town, and called it all off four weeks before their wedding. Fran is convinced that she'll see the error of her ways...until he bumps into her with her new boyfriend, and any dreams he might have had of reconciliation are dashed. He has no choice but to move on and try to meet someone new. Meanwhile, his sometimes neurotic best friends, Ben and Jon, are suffering the opposite of Fran's predicament - their girlfriends are mad about them, but the guys appear lukewarm about their girls and are forever on the lookout for someone else. Whether trawling for talent at a Rabbi's house, being mistaken as part of a gay couple or negotiating advances from his lovelorn neighbour upstairs, Fran's search for ... Written by Alicia Brown

Sensitive, thoughtful, and with an unusual take on the world of romance and bromance
11 December 2010 | by njsphillipsSee all my reviews

Fran should be newly-wed and on his honeymoon. Dumped by his fiancé a few weeks ago, instead he finds himself outside the comfort and excitement of a prospective marriage, and in a world peopled by predatory neighbours, the new boyfriend of his ex, potential dates, and (more-or-less) useless/helpful mates. On the one side there's Jon who seems in a worse state than Fran himself. Al Weaver plays the role with huge natural energy and impressive poise between comedy and despair. On the other side there's Ben (Chris Coghill) who is the more archetypal lad. The film is a well-observed look at the relationships and predicaments of a generation of people who are marrying later and a generation of men brought up to be more sensitive and struggling with that proposition. When Seema (Wunmi Mosaku), Fran's school-boy crush, turns up, unexpectedly, a delicate charm and grace is injected into Fran's world and the beginnings of a new romance seem to emerge. This is a charming and sensitive treatment of the question: what to do do when my expectations and plans for life suddenly evaporate? There are some especially lovely shots that turn the ordinary environment in something to savour and some elegant performances. And great soundtrack to boot.
