Love conquers all
13 June 2015 | by elizevnSee all my reviews

A feel good intercontinental love story, encompassed by undeniable humor, indifference, understanding and some good old nostalgia.

Subtly taking on everything you would expect to see in the ingredients for a perfect love story: wholesome, healthy and fulfilling.

Leading Lady left me smiling and believing that love will always prevail, be it in a big city or on a small farm forgotten by time, held together by hope.

If you do anything this weekend - make sure it includes Leading Lady and some popcorn!

A definite 10/10
