4.0 out of 5 stars Based on the film alone, this DVD should be excellent, 23 Oct. 2013
This review is from: Not Another Happy Ending [DVD] (DVD)
Ok, so we all can see the film is on pre-order only, so I'm judging this review based on the film itself (although I'm sure there will be something in the way of extras on the DVD to further appeal to the viewer.)

I saw this film at its premiere at the Edinburgh International Film Festival and found it completely charming from the start. First off, its a romantic comedy set in Glasgow, which is different in itself but also shows the city to be vibrant, fun, colourful and buzzing. Gillan, in her first lead role post-Doctor Who is more than capable of holding up the comedic and dramatic aspects of her character, and the chemistry she shares with French actor Stanley Weber literally simmers onscreen. Iain De Castaecker (Marvel's Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D)as Roddy, provides some of the films funniest moments and the film is well supported by the remaining cast including Gary Lewis and Skins star Freya Mavor.

Its a bright and breezy attempt to make a really upbeat romance in a place you wouldnt normally find it - which is sort of the point of the film, which tells the story of successfull writer Jane Lockhart who, having found success with life on all levels, develops a crippling case of writers block. However her publicist Tom (Weber) and his firm will be bankrupt if Jane doesnt finish her book so he and Roddy set about sabotaging her happy life in an attempt to make her so miserable she can finish her new novel.

Its a lovely and unusual premise for a movie, but is aided by slick direction, offbeat humour, engaging performances and a brilliant soundtrack showcasing some of Scotlands best talent. I enjoyed the film and I'm sure many more will enjoy this DVD.
