About the Movie
Lone parent Anna (Anne-Marie Duff) is involved with her next-door neighbor George (Rupert Graves), whose marriage has settled into a rut. Meanwhile, care worker Stephen (Ralf Little) is having doubts about his own long-term relationship. When Anna and Stephen meet by chance, each glimpses the happiness that has hitherto been so elusive. Straight from the Edinburgh Film Festival, IFC Films presents this sophisticated indie debut from writer/director Roger Goldby, a bracingly illuminating portrayal of stalled relationships and second chances.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: If you want a good, thought-provoking wallow in the happy/sad soup of life, this is a tear-jerking gem.
Fresh: Offers mild, easy pleasures, even if it stalks emotional truths rather than pierces them.
Rotten: With its emphasis on love at first sight, the central romance is contrived, but the excellent cast do engage.
