Product Description

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.

The Waiting Room [2008]

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.

Goldby's full length feature debut stays within the pace & boundaries of its situations & characters.

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.

I am not one for the usual romantic comedies (mainly American cheese!) but I loved this British film staring Anne-Marie Duff and Ralf Little. It's a very touching story which won a place in my heart. Highly Recommended.

A chance meeting in a railway station waiting room is the catalyst for a romantic drama that carries an unexpected emotional punch. I really enjoyed this movie and though it treads the familiar territory of the romantic narrative - 2 people meet, fall in love etc.. - it takes risks by keeping the main protagonists apart for most of the movie. The film is about love; loss of love, need of love, falling out of love, love at first sight. Anne Marie Duff and Ralf Little are the leads who do great things with their roles but the standouts are Rupert Graves as the neighbour needing to regain his focus and his wife played by Zoe Telford who has a couple of fantastic scenes - the dinner party and the confessional in the gymn. All in all a great movie.

I only went to see this film because my girlfriend said I had to but I am pleased to say it was one of the best things I've seen this year: the pace, the story, the bitter-sweet poignancy and acting were superb. I thoroughly recommend this to anyone (especially normally action-centric males like myself).

My girlfriend wanted to see "Sex in the city", but (luckily) the tickets were sold out - so we saw this little British film we knew nothing about and decided to see it on the spur of the moment. What a luck we had! It is definitely the most romantic movie i have seen in a long time. If you ever fell in love at first sight with someone you meet on a train go and see this movie. You won't regret it. Highly recommended viewings for those early dates and more...

I read in the paper that this was a low budget film so wasn't expecting too much. However it is a charming little film and beautifully played by the cast. Deserves to be more recognised.
