Writer- di­rec­tor Peter Howitt’s de­but, a like­able “what if” ro­man­tic com­edy, fol­lows two par­al­lel sce­nar­ios. In one, He­len ( Gwyneth Pal­trow, left) catches a train and is ex­posed to her boyfriend’s in­fi­delity; in the other, she misses the train and meets Lon­don’s most charm­ing sin­gle man ( John Han­nah). Pal­trow is at her best here; her char­ac­ter is im­pos­si­ble to take your eyes off. And she has an equally ac­com­plished ac­tor in Four Wed­dings and a Fu­neral star Han­nah, whose nat­u­ral charm never seems con­trived, which makes their courtship all the more con­vinc­ing. This is a mod­est di­ver­sion for the in­cur­able ro­man­tic.
