More often, though, Hopkins and writer Robert Festinger pile up the commonplaces hoping they'll result in actual characters.

The quasi-credible friendship that develops between Emily and Harry gives way to a less plausible romance. But the winning, sympathetic Keaton and an enjoyably puckish Gleeson largely sell the contrived setup.

It's a pleasant rattle of a film that makes fine use of its likable leads - Keaton's oddly regal klutziness matches well against Gleeson's gruff moral rectitude - and an appealing setting.

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.

Despite a good cast led by Diane Keaton and Brendan Gleeson, and although it's based on a true story, I didn't find anything about the movie very compelling.
