Product Description

British romantic comedy starring Christina Ricci as the mysterious Miranda, who changes everything for 21 year-old librarian Frank (John Simm) when she walks into the suburban Yorkshire library where he works. Six days of blissful yet slightly odd sex commence and Frank finds himself madly in love. Then suddenly Miranda vanishes - completely. The besotted Frank follows a trail that leads him to London, where he discovers that Miranda is a con artist involved in a complex and dangerous scam...

3.0 out of 5 stars Uninspiring . 8 Feb 2008
Format:DVD
I was expecting great things from this film , given the actors appearing in it , but I am afraid it failed to live up to expectations . It was very hard going , and you have the feeling that the people were in it only to get another pay day . One of the stars I have given it is only for the fact that Christina Ricci is in it . If you are a fan , then watch the far better films such as The Opposite of Sex , Buffalo 66 , Desert Blue , or Pecker .

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyably off-centre piece of art 20 April 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Released by Film4, this DVD includes cast and crew interviews, a featurette, plus trailer. The film is 89 minutes and extras another 25 minutes approx.

Written by Rob Young and directed by Marc Munden, the film Miranda is about an enigmatic young woman who enters the life of shy, daydreaming librarian Frank. Suddenly, he finds himself catapulted into the world of confidence tricksters, sadistic villains and amazing sex. But who is the real Miranda?

Filmed mostly in urban Yorkshire's grim interiors, the film has a stark reality of everyday life, which is carefully and cleverly juxtaposed against the dreams and ambitions of the working class and the achievements and methods of the elite class. Portraying the multi-faceted Miranda is the wonderfully adaptable and accomplished Christina Ricci, in one of her many excellent characterisations. Guiding her manoeuvres is the elegant schemer Christian (played magnificently by a superb John Hurt). The new love in Miranda's life, Frank, is yet another incredibly good character role taken to great heights by a simply stunning John Simm, who is totally believable yet also incredibly funny at times. Kyle MacLachlan plays the role of Nailor, who is more than just Frank's rival for Miranda's affections.

Some very strong performances from this cast, who all seemed to push each other to that higher level. Recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Screwed up but very watchable 18 Nov 2007
Format:DVD
Okay, so slightly biased, I used to use the library building featured in the film. But anyway, John Simm is great, as always. A very screwy film, with some seriously f-ed up characters. Well worth watching. Ignore the first post, the guy is clearly lazy, and not bright enough for a very clever mediation on life, love, and relationships.
Hard work but worth it!

3.0 out of 5 stars Forgettable 6 Mar 2010
Format:DVD
An early film appearance from John Simm sees him cast as a day-dreaming librarian who falls for enigmatic hustler Christina Ricci. The promising cast is further bolstered by Kle MacLachlan and the inimitable John Hurt, however this talent is mostly wasted, as the flimsy plot and tedious set pieces do nothing to bring the film to life. Forgettable.
