Hampstead Reviews

July 18, 2019
Here Keaton reprises the role of the slightly kooky, klutzy, and lovable gal next door in this toasty crumpet of a film, set around London's scenic Hampstead Heath.

Diane Keaton still looks like Annie Hall, a little older and a little wiser. Pairing her with the grizzled but appealing Brendan Gleeson is a plus.
June 20, 2019
Predictable even by romantic-comedy standards, but the charms of mismatched but oddly compatible stars Diane Keaton and Brendan Gleeson are not to be dismissed.
June 18, 2019
Lovable actors, supportive relationships in sweet romcom.
June 13, 2019
Keaton's nutty charm moves the story along, rallying against the classism of Heath residents and embracing the individualist.
June 13, 2019
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.
June 13, 2019
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.

... 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.

Keaton and Gleeson deliver charming performances, with her as another sweet but slightly nervy type and him as one of his hairy, scary, bear-like chaps with (you saw it coming) a heart of gold.
August 16, 2017
Eccentricity triumphs in the end, leaving Annie's ghost fluttering happily evermore.

100 minutes of laughter, smiles, tears and not embarrassing feel-goodism. [Full review in Spanish]

It's cloyingly cute and idyllic at times -- but worth it for the two heavyweights centre-stage.
June 26, 2017
Keaton and Gleeson are sweet together (I like the sweaty, studenty-vibe they create in Emma's attic). It's also nice to see London's housing crisis being discussed.
June 23, 2017
Hampstead is a slighter, sillier affair, and reminded me of one of Richard Curtis's fluffier endeavours. It's very watchable, though, thanks to the winning pairing of Diane Keaton and Brendan Gleeson.
June 22, 2017
Whimsical and first-world problematic as the story may be, Keaton and Gleeson create a genuinely enjoyable chalk-and-cheese rapport.
June 22, 2017
There is nothing remotely challenging in the roles but Gleeson is charming and understated and there is a real spark of chemistry with Keaton.
June 22, 2017
What it lacks in a script that's also painfully 'right-on' is compensated by a fine cast in a quirky and charming piece of cinematic souffle with Keaton and Gleeson in sparkling form. It's fun.
June 22, 2017
Gleeson is a fine actor in most circumstances, but here the material is so thin he's given nothing to work with, or against, as there are no decent jokes, and there's almost no drama.
