Heartwarming drama starring Anne-Marie Duff and Ralf Little as two strangers whose chance meeting at a train station throws both of their lives onto a different track. Anna (Duff) and Stephen (Little) are brought together in a train station waiting room by Roger (Frank Finlay), an old man who has been waiting to meet his wife. Roger reminisces with Anna and Stephen about the special things he used to do with his wife when they were younger, and, as they listen, the two young people are drawn together and make a real connection. Anna is a single mother who is having an affair with her best friend's husband, while Stephen is having doubts about whether he can commit to his girlfriend, and finds solace through his work at the local old people's home. After going their separate ways, Anna and Stephen's lives move onwards, but they soon find themselves thinking more and more about each other, and wondering what would happen should they meet again.

It is a real pleasure to come across a film taking a warm and affectionate look at characters troubled with problem relationships, characters that one can relate to.
Anna (Anne-Marie Duff) is a lone mum separated from her partner who in a moment of madness finds herself in bed with George (Rupert Graves) the husband of her best friend and next door neighbour Jem (Zoe Telford).
The following day she is accosted at a railway station by a confused old man Roger (Frank Findlay) (superb example of a fine actor creating a real character out of a very small cameo role) and in passing meets Stephen (Ralf Little) collecting Roger to take him back to the care home, and they are attracted but part.
Both written and directed by Roger Goldby the somewhat predictable plot does not deter in any way from the enjoyment of this engaging movie, and at the end one wants to watch it again.
What more can one say,
Great to watch an enjoyable British Film that does not disappoint.
It's a `slow boil' offering & honest fare, no easy fix `junk script' headiness, it's a film that can make you think.
The Waiting Room stayed true to itself & rich enough in story line to allow anyone who has `loved & lost', to relate to some part of the different threads explored.
Women will readily love it, men will warm to it. Couples can relate to the fragile ever present foibles & traits of relationships, honestly portrayed on screen, mirroring the realties of love in this life.
So partners beware, it should do well on DVD given its Christmas & should fit well into a large stocking.
I particularly liked the sound track, which complemented the film, amplifying & conveying in music, the words & actions on screen. The score really helped one immerse yourself in this credible slice of believable London living.
The acting, of all generations, was sound across the board & thought a fair amount of chemistry between Duff & Little, though felt Graves only came alive towards the end.
The time in the nursing home was well spent, providing Little with the well needed opportunity to develop his character, enabling a UK audience to dispel the youthful raucousness of his recent BBC3 days.
Therefore, whilst some editing & changes might have been made (like any debut full length feature), the script, direction, acting, music, camera/lighting/sound etc all combined to make for a sound satisfying film.

Really enjoyed this film, although didn't see the need to show Ralph Little naked and peeing! Apart from that, a nice film.Published on 1 July 2014 by Bassguy
A confused but very slow plot. Charming ending but not worth waiting for. Altogether not worth any price or even the time watching it hoping it could get better.Published on 19 Jan. 2011 by Kindle Customer
