The new drama film Hampstead starring Brendan Gleeson, Diane Keaton, James Norton, Jason Watkins.

In Hampstead an American widow Emily Walters (American actress Diane Keaton - The Godfather films, Father Of The Bride films) finds unexpected love with a man Donald Horner (Republic Of Ireland actor Brendan Gleeson - Mission: Impossible 2, Edge Of Tomorrow and the father of Republic Of Ireland actors Domhnall Gleeson and Brian Gleeson) living wild on Hampstead Heath in London the capital of England when they take on the developers who want to destroy his home.

Amongst the other actors / actresses in Hampstead includes English actor James Norton (UK TV Series Grantchester, Rush) as Philip Walters Emily's son, English actor Jason Watkins (UK TV Series Trollied and Line Of Duty) as James Smythe an accountant and a musician who is friends with Emily Walters and Philip Walters, English actress Lesley Manville (Maleficent, Mr. Turner) as Fiona Emily's friend, English actor Simon Callow (Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls, Amadeus) as a Judge, English actor Alistair Petrie (Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, Rush) as Steve Crowley, English actor Hugh Skinner (UK TV Series The Windsors and Poldark) as Erik, English actress Rosalind Ayres (Titanic, Black Beauty) as Susan, English actor Brian Protheroe (UK TV Series 55 Degrees North and Holby City) as Rory, English actor Will Smith not the black Will Smith since this one is white (UK TV Series The Thick Of It, Paddington) as Leon Rowlands, John Sackville (The Hoarder, The Wedding Date) as The Housing Minister, Peter Singh (Alan Partridge: Alpha Papa, UK TV Series In The Club) as Xaviar and Stavros Demetraki (Dracula Untold, Risen) as David.

Overall Hampstead is a good drama film filled with drama, sadness, tough hard harsh times, fall outs, family, friendship, togetherness, London people, communities, fishing, lakes, forests, people coming together to support each other, cemeteries, music, musical instruments, love and other things throughout the film.

So I will give Hampstead an overall rating of 3 out of 5 stars and Hampstead is worth seeing if you like British drama films like The Sense Of An Ending or any other films along the same lines.

So if you get the chance to see Hampstead in the cinema then you should go and see it sooner than later.
