11 December 2015 Film of Choice at The Plaza Dorchester Tonight - Christmas With The Coopers. If you google this film you come up with Love The Coopers, obviously on the American side of the pond it goes under this name. From the title you can immediately gauge what this film is about. A family, made up of many dysfunctional parts which comes together at Christmas, each hiding their own secrets and fighting their own demons. At the centre of this family we find John Goodman and Diane Keaton, two well established stars who keep this story flowing along as the main protagonists of this fairly mundane plot. However, although it was not a laugh a minute, it was a completely watchable film. Token man in uniform played by Jake Lacy who had one of those faces I feel I've seen before but can't actually place......quite nice to look at though. Narrated by Steve Martin the film comes to a touching and plausible end. A nice easy watch on the run up to Christmas.
