About the Film

In the course of their day-to-day life, middle-class suburbanites Harvey and Jesson meet and, from normal nods of recognition, become acquaintances, which ripens into deep affection. Both are married and parents, but their meetings become brief, meaningful highlights in their weekly lives.

Would have paid more to watch this

I'm generally quite sceptical when it comes to old movies, for fear it's just going to be long, slow and dead boring despite the rave reviews. For 99p though, felt couldn't really go wrong. This movie is absolutely fantastic and gripping. It grabs you right from the start and I couldn't stop watching! The lead actress conveys a thousand words with just one look, and the style of the movie, where she is narrating this to her husband is genius. I wish Hollywood could make movies like this now but this kind of class, writing and acting just can't be replicated. You won't regret downloading this.

best film ever!
