      Audience Member This is a cute movie I saw on t.v. about a girl bullied in high school by a boy. Fast forward they are out of school, she is working and they run into each other. I don't believe she remembers him, but he remembers her. She thinks he is a nice guy spoiling her in and around England. Rom com I think I only seen once, can't really find this one would def. watch again, so in the end the guy tells her who he is to her shock. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/16/23 Full Review Audience Member This was a wonderful movie, makes you feel rejuvenated just watching it! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/07/23 Full Review Audience Member What I like about this film is that it doesn't subscribe to the cookie-cutter rom-com plot points. In a vague way it does, but the themes and sobering moments provide a more in-depth and realistic view of what life is like for a woman who starts her day in the worst way then gets treated to several outings by a mysterious but friendly stranger who, as it turns out, isn't as strange as she first supposed. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 01/14/23 Full Review Audience Member Watched it on Netflix - a delightful movie. Far better then many of the nominated movies I've seen this year! Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/23/23 Full Review Audience Member One line summary: Slow, endearing, thoughtful. -------------------------------- Ashley's day starts badly with an extended interaction with a male aggressor whom she walks away from. He throws hot coffee on her. Michael intervenes. Ashley and Michael are both out of work, and get to know each other over tea, then over clothes shopping for Michael's sister. This was at an haute couture establishment where they were the only customers. Michael pays for this. They have a decadent meal at his expense. Then he demonstrates his 'premonitions.' They visit Michael's sister on her not-so-happy birthday. They hike through an arboretum of some size, during which Michael carried Ashley pick-a-back. They talk and visit an old site of Michael's graffiti writing. Michael asks Ashley to decide the next thing that they together. She asks him to buy a used saxophone for her musician friend. They give the gift, and find out how her friend lost his earlier sax. Ashley sings and plays piano with her friend. They go for a drink. The man who started Ashley's day badly by throwing coffee on her is in the bar. Ashley points him out, then Michael observes him. Michael faces him down in a very public way, then returns to Ashley. Turns out the bad guy is a solicitor for abused women. Michael and Ashley have a beer, and Michael tells her why he wanted her to have a nice day. They had known each other as children. Michael had been rather bad to her then and was hoping to apologise to her now. Will Ashley sort this out? Will Michael let it go? --------Scores------- Cinematography: 8/10 A little fuzzy, but mostly good. Sound: 8/10 A bit soft on conversations, but mostly good. Acting: 8/10 Rather nice. The two principals were quite good. Screenplay: 10/10 Lovely story, well told. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/13/23 Full Review Audience Member Interesting, unusual, yet believable premise involving real characters and real dialogue. I rather enjoyed it!
