What a wee gem of a film. I don't mind admitting we went along a bit apprehensive, but it was funny, and an awful lot deeper than I could ever had expected.
I think the director did a magnificent job of getting more out of the group of actors than he probably expected. It's just so British as well, but mercifully not in that Full Monty we're-sad-victims-but-salt-of-the-earth-and-happy way that I detest in so many British films.
I enjoyed the real-life clumsiness of how most of us stumble into a relationship, which was really helped by a great script and fantastic cinematography.
Don't go to this for the characters' poetry readings though. On this showing William McGonagall would have outshone as the resident bard.
