Running away from a troubled marriage, Kate Frazier hopes to find anonymity with a new home and a new job in Chicago. Despite friendly flirtation from co-workers and others, the shy and reserved Kate keeps her distance, avoiding questions about her sudden arrival and her recent past. When Kate meets Frank Logan, the two discover unexpected satisfaction in their mutual, shared silence. Haunted by the troubling choices he has made, Frank finds a kindred spirit in the younger Kate, and for a moment the two seem destined to redeem and remake each other. As the holidays and New Year pass against an urban landscape that seems both breathtakingly beautiful and starkly quiet, Kate and Frank’s friendship becomes one of necessity and survival for these two lost spirits. But neither lonely soul can escape the lives they have left behind. As events unfold and the painful truth slowly emerges, Frank is forced to face the man he really is, while Kate struggles to be the stronger woman she needs to be. The Merry Gentleman is a heady mix of suspense, gentle romance and quiet humour -- a riveting, uniquely entertaining tale of forgiveness and redemption that blends a hopeful spirit with a surprisingly dark heart.

The story is quite complex and at times ambiguous. This is a film I think where it's better that the viewer doesn't go in having had a synopsis in advance. It's quirky, off-beat, switches mood frequently and takes it's time. But it always remains interesting and is a film that stays with you long after it ends.
Having lived in America for a time myself it manages to capture the atmosphere of the country in recent times and it's people very well - although I'm not sure if this was a goal of the Director and co-star Michael Keaton.
Though Keaton is listed as the star his character is really secondary and he dosen't have all that much screen time - The Stars here are really Kelly MacDonald and Tom Bastounes who play a seperated lonely ex-pat Scot and a lonely Detective respectively. All three give nuanced and interesting performances along with the good supporting cast.
It's a quiet, subdued film that can't really be pidgeonholed in any one genre and may ask too much from the average viewer without giving much in return, but I think it's worth at least a rental to those who want a story instead of just another run of the mill blockbuster.
The non action is punctuated by stretches of silence from Keaton's' man of few words. For insomniacs only.

Superb production values and great performances all round. Michael Keaton does well in his Directorial debut. Something different - with interesting sets and characters.Published on 12 April 2014 by Trevor William Douglas
Picked as I am a Keaton fan. Very different portrayal by him, not sure it utterly works - a Drive-type of apparently emotionfree killer. Read morePublished on 17 April 2012 by Anon
