Storyline

Emily Jackson lives a fast-paced life. Always on the go, able to talk around the clock, with a sensitive soul she loves playing matchmaker for her friends. It's Emily's gay roommate and frequent companion Peter, who becomes again the subject matchmaking skills when handsome new photographer assistant Paolo arrives at the Vogue offices, where Emily works. She makes it her mission to bring the two men together. Unfortunately for her, she is so busy arranging a love connection between Peter and Paolo that she remains completely blind to the one suitor who longs to provide her with the loving companionship that she so cheerfully arranges for others. And so it does make sense that Peter, a screenwriter in the making, starts telling the story from his own point of view. Written by kerrsmith2306

Just watched this as part of the opening night gala of the London Lesbian and Gay Film Festival. Lived up to all my expectations. A fun, funny romantic comedy with dialogue thats stylish (not just stylized) and a great cast. Brittany Murphy and Matthew Rhys are especially good, and Catherine Tate gave a performance that left me wondering why she confines herself to catchphrases on her show. Also, as was pointed out in the introduction on the night, this is a movie that shows a London closer to the one I actually live in (though the director, Alek Keshishian, did point out he himself had lived in London for ten years!). A great way to start the festival. Deserves a wide audience.
