First aired on Masterpiece Theatre, this charming TV-movie stars Robson Green (Touching Evil, Reckless) and Caroline Goodall (The Mists of Avalon). Set in England, Green plays a tabloid reporter writing under the name "Mrs. Jones," who is assigned by his boss to try to get some dirt on the prime minister, Goodall. Ingratiating himself into her re-election campaign, he finds himself drawn to her, and must weigh his feelings against his assignment, while dodging the scrutiny of her staff.
It's a lovely, romantic movie, not to be taken too seriously. This point should be stressed as much occurs in the movie which takes a great deal of disbelief. Think of it as a modern fairy tale that sometimes surprises you. Well-acted by all, as I've come to expect from these productions, and Green and Goodall have nice chemistry together. In summary, it's fluff, but it's intelligent fluff.
[As a film note, both Keeley Hawes and Peter Firth (MI-5/Spooks television series actors) appear in this movie, although never in the same scenes.)
