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.
But Hopkins... is not prepared to stray too far from the path he has set, with the result that we end up in a wholly predictable, perfectly pleasant, crashingly bland place.
