Two things of interest: this film is on an IMDb list of the best love films of all times. And Domhnall Gleeson is Ron Weasley’s oldest brother Bill.
And it’s about time travel. Cool.
Bill Nighy is Bill Nighy and I so love Bill Nighy.
I like many of the cast. Lindsay Duncan is always good and Domhnall Gleeson is very appealing.
It’s a bit too cosy for me but the cast pull it together quite well so even though it’s not on my list of the best love films ever made it’s worth seeing.
