An unpolished gem.

Quirky British comedy about mistaken identity, sisterhood and poetry.

Nov 1, 2018 | Rating: 7/10 | Full Review…

Fans of Ben Wheatley's Sightseers will be glad to see Alice Lowe turn up in this British comedy of mistaken identity and bad poetry. That's about as far as the similarities between the two films go, alas.

Amid the not always totally successful comedy, it has an underlying warmth and sweetness that creeps up on you and makes you glad you stayed with it.

The ending turns soggy. But until then it passes the time divertingly enough.

It's fairly obvious that the cast and crew began making this film with only the thinnest outline of a plot and characters, because the story feels like it was made up as they went along.
