‘Everyone promises you happily ever after…but life turns into a different kind of fairy tale.’
– Rachel, Imagine Me and You
My GRADE: B+
I just came out of this Fox Searchlight british romantic comedy starring Piper Perabo (Coyote Ugly) and Matthew Goode (Match Point) loving it. Of course I love anything british, so perhaps I’m a bit prejudiced. My movie going companion however hated the film. Without giving too much away, the argument came down to a matter of ethical preference. Which is preferable, making sacrifices to avoid hurting the people you care about, or letting the truth set things free, trusting time to settle things and life to be a painful experience anyway, but as one character in the movie says so poignantly: The heart heals. Watch it and decide for yourself which side of the fence you come down on.
