An enjoyable film
4 November 2017 | by Gordon-11See all my reviews

This film tells the story of a wealthy American woman whose fortunes have turned after her husband's death. She befriends a man who lives wild no the heath next to her home, and together they fight for things they truly wanted in life.

The characters are very interesting in here for a change. The superficial friends in the neighbourhood are rather thought provoking, as they appear so perfect from the outside but they are way less than perfect on the inside. Indeed they seem to be selfish and have little compassion for each other. The final courtroom scene is unexpectedly touching, as the stranger makes a moving confession. It is an enjoyable, and certainly unconventional romantic film.
