kev.’s review published on Letterboxd:
“We are so lucky to be alive. We are so lucky to be able to help each other, in little ways, and in big ways. The reason we are lucky is because helping each other is, in fact, what makes us happy.”
I had seen so many opinions on this film, most of them bad, so I didn’t know what to expect from it. I was pleased and surprised to find out it’s not nearly as bad as I was led to believe it was. Sure, it’s nowhere near great, but it’s heartwarmingly wholesome that it makes up for its cheesiness with a feel (sorta) good story.
It had some questionable writing in some scenes and unnecessary details regarding the political climate and immigration in the UK, but that doesn’t cloud the main point of the film, which is to make you feel something. It also had a nice plot twist I wasn’t expecting, which in a way, might make it stand out from other romantic comedies.
Not perfect, but I had a big smile on my face when it ended, so I’ll consider that a win.
