It has the emotional wallop of a Mike Leigh offering and the acute intelligence of an early John Schlesinger effort. This is a film about learning how to seize the day. And this is a film that does just that.

Hunter and Hunsinger show what can happen if you opt instead for the humour that accompanies can-I-feel? quiet. Turns out wit and warmth and keen observation produce their own euphoria -- what you might call a natural high.

Mildly engaging melodrama that's more sharply written than directed.

Subtle in its use of cause and effect, Lawless Heart is a light-hearted study of relationships and regret, of last chances and lessons in love.

Never shouts out its emotional explorations. Instead, it employs a soft, secure voice, and the viewer is lulled even more by the authentic, unadorned performances of a strong ensemble.

There is a real honesty to this British comedy-drama that is appealing, and which also makes its soap-opera plot a bit easier to swallow.

Complex but never confusing -- thanks to the three-act structure, which replays the same moments from different perspectives.

Teems with insights into the human condition revealed by an unusually smart script and a wonderfully committed cast.
