Brief Synopsis – After a disastrous Class reunion, a man convinces a stranger to pretend to me his wife in order to fend off a drunken ex-girlfriend.
My Take on it –This is a film that I came across by accident and had quite low expectations going in because I wasn’t quite sure what I was getting myself into.
It’s actually a very fun and clever story that never ceases to amaze as it progresses.
The characters are developed really well and the superb chemistry between Natasha Little and Rupert Penny-Jones helps make thing so believable.
The are both underrated actors and the performances here should hopefully help them in the future because they help keep this story feeling quite genuine and real the whole way through.
The choice to make this a more adult rom-com was a wise one since it allows us to get a much more realistic look at the dynamics between all of these characters.
The themes that are explored here are quite powerful and the low budget look and feel here helps make it even more impactful.
This is a dialogue driven story and the way that the various conversations go throughout the film adds so much to what we think about these characters.
Love the way that they take some of these situations to realistic points where we can get a full idea of what might be going on in the minds of these characters along the way.
Rating – Globe Worthy (8/10)
