DIRECTOR Jesse Peretz
CAST Rose Byrne, Chris O’Dowd, Ethan Hawke, Denise Gough
A charming romantic comedy with a musical tint about a love triangle between a couple and a fading musician, based on the novel by Nick Hornby (High Fidelity, About a Boy).
Based on the novel by Nick Hornby (High Fidelity, About a Boy), Rose Byrne plays Annie, the long suffering girlfriend of Duncan (Chris O’Dowd), who is obsessed with obscure rocker Tucker Crowe (Ethan Hawke). Thanks to the internet and a bizarre series of events, the elusive Crowe crashes into Annie and Duncan’s life, changing it forever. With charming performances and great chemistry all round, this is a light and comedic account of life’s second chances – perfect for relieving your pre-Christmas stress.
(2018 USA 98 mins)
Hornby’s brilliance has always been his ability to dwell on the less lovely aspects of life — loneliness, obsession, regret — without sacrificing the warmth or the laughs, and that is beautifully preserved here. So while, overall, we’re on familiar feel-good ground, it’s mined for some astutely observed, occasionally painful, moments of truth … A sharp-witted, amusing, often genuinely moving romantic comedy. With an indie-rock heart and outstanding performances from Byrne and Hawke, this is comfort food of a superior order. Simon Braund, Empire
