Goofs

When Jessica is talking to Damon on the street (piano scene), the medium shot of them in profile shows their shadows parallel to the sidewalk. In the close-up shots of Jessica and Damon, the shadows are at about 45º to the sidewalk. This can be seen in shadows of the trees behind Jessica and of the shadows of Damon's head on his body.

Great potential
28 May 2021 | by TimelessSelfSee all my reviews

As has been mentioned by other people, the protagonist doesn't come across properly I don't think, she's a bit rude, self centred and childish. I think this story would have been much better suited to a TV show format. But not a bad film to watch when you can't seem to find anything else. Always love Chris O'Dowd, he has a great way of playing love interests where you genuinely believe he just worships her. Something about the eyes I think :)
