Director: Alex Holdridge
Cast: Scott McNary, Brian McGuire, Sara Simmonds, Kathleen Luong
A romantic charmer that isn’t afraid to bring us real characters, with all their flaws, in a warming tale of the search for the perfect smacker.
It’s a simple storyline, but one brilliantly developed as luckless-in-love McNary is talked into going on line in search of a new squeeze … who turns out to be feisty Simmonds, who seems an unlikely replacement for a lost love.
As the New Year approaches – and the moment for the perfect midnight kiss – we follow the pair on their shaky journey of romance.
The clever thing about the film is that the central characters don’t, at first glimpse, enlist our sympathy … that grows as the story unfolds.
Star Rating: 4/5.
