Number 2 in Richard Curtis’s (Love Actually, Notting Hill, Four Weddings) list of films to watch during the Coronavirus crisis. He says:
“This is a film by director Drake Doremus – pretty well my favourite youngish film-maker. It was made for a tiny budget – stars Felicity Jones at her most radiant and Anton Yelchin – and is so beautiful to look at, and so full of truth that it’s up there with my favourite romantic films of all time – arm-wrestling with Brief Encounter. I loved it so much I hired the cinematographer to do my film About Time – if I could have got the director as well that would have really done the trick.”
