Jamie Campbell Bower,
A funny and irresistible story of a young girl who literally cannot see or hear her mother, even though she is living with her under the same roof. With the help of an eccentric psychiatrist, and a local, accidental hero, our heroine has to grow up, but falls in love and eventually takes hold of her future - despite not being able to see what's right in front of her.
A truly beautiful & thought provoking film. In spite of the title this is not merely a simple love story. It is delightfully quirky but, just as importantly, it has a wealth of emotional depth & really gets you thinking & questioning your own vision of life. The cinematography & music is beautiful & the acting is superb throughout, especially from the two leads - Aidan Turner & Shannon Tarbet. The characters come alive & you find yourself totally invested in what happens to them. Highly recommended.
