This review is from: Then She Found Me  [DVD] (DVD)
I bought this film because I am a fan of both Colin Firth and Matthew Broderick.
Colin Firth gives a fine performance in his role as a single father, deserted by his wife and left to care for his two young children. There is a wonderful tenderness between him and Helen Hunt - they are so natural together. Both find themselves in traumatic situations and their connection is touching and wholly believable.
Matthew Broderick's role as Hunt's husband is smaller but provides a necessary contrast. As a previous 'real-life' partner of Hunt's, their scenes together feel natural and spontaneous.
Helen Hunt is lovely. With very little make up and lank hair for much of the film she gives such a touching and, at times,pained performance that is really beautiful. Her commentary on the film is also well worth listening to and gives a real insight into what she hoped to create as a director.
There is so much to recommend in this film. Buy it now!
