Best rom-com in ages and ages and ages ... Sally Hawkins comes to America!
As a reviewer, I try to see as many films as I can and then I try to review them all.
Many of these are supposed rom-coms, or attempts at rom-coms, and although I have seen a large number in recent years, I cannot readily remember one as fluid or as entertaining or as well-written as this one.
Props to Director/Writer Sasha Gordon for putting together a project that, in its own way, competes with classics like Bridgit Jones.
And props to actress Cristin Milioti for finally bringing to American audiences the cross-Atlantic equivalent of a full-blown "Sally Hawkins" character. (Take a look at the wonderful Happy Go Lucky 2008 to see the similarities in the performances, camera angles, reaction shots, setups, and so on.)
Refreshing, breezy, thoughtful, and highly recommended.
