Critic Reviews for Hampstead
Don't come looking for social realism. This is an unapologetically fluffy film.
Keaton's terrific, and it's sweet and airy and so unhurried you really feel like you've had a nice afternoon in the long grasses and cool breezes on the edge of the city. You wouldn't want to live there, though.
These yin and yang performers complement each other nicely, like tangy rhubarb and sweet, thick custard. It's just a shame that the vehicle which has brought them together is so insipid.
Diane Keaton and Brendan Gleeson aren't an obvious match; despite their combined lovability, this slender romcom doesn't prove otherwise.
... combines the Annie Hall-ish self-confidence of Diane Keaton with the grunts of a bearded Brendan Gleeson... [Full review in Spanish]
Keaton and Gleeson are simply too good for there not to be some fun here, despite a leisurely pace, much hanging on a rather arcane piece of British law, and Emily's eventually rather annoying habit of failing to speak up for herself.
