Fantastic little film about friendship and those meddlin' men with a brilliant Edinburgh setting.
15 December 2004 | by (England) – See all my reviews

well i saw this film at about 1 and so half expected it to be utterly pants and uninteresting fluff. therefore i was pleasantly surprised when after seeing the film i wanted to buy it. it juxtaposed brilliantly the vivacious yet somewhat uncontrollable Cora against the more reserved Ellen yet managed to maintain the believability of there relationship. The scene where Cora goes slightly mad in the supermarket after a delayed reaction to her almost fatal car accident stands out, as does Ellen's realisation that she wasn't able to be herself when she was with Daniel (whilst standing on top of a large purple sofa swinging a cushion). The friendship was portrayed well and there was the sense that this was both characters only real female friendship so when Cora couldn't tell Ellen about her night with Daniel and the result you could understand. One of its few failings in my view was that it gave you glimpses of a great supporting cast yet never really let you get to know them, so although the film was based around the central female protagonists it would have been nice to see a bit more of them. Helena Bonham-Carter and Gina McKee were great and the story itself was engaging and sweet and the ending felt very "girl power" ish but believable none the less. Fantastic little film about friendship and those meddlin men with a brilliant Edinburgh setting.
