TA­MARA DREWE ( M)

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - Dvds -

★★★ Stars: Gemma Arter­ton, Roger Al­lam Di­rec­tor: Stephen Frears Avail­able: On DVD and BD

AN ugly duck­ling in her teen years, Ta­mara Drewe ( Gemma Arter­ton) is now a sassy and suc­cess­ful journo whose re­turn to her sleepy small home­town vil­lage cre­ates havoc for the res­i­dents of a writers’ re­treat as well as stir­ring up the feel­ings of an exboyfriend. This amus­ing but flawed Bri­tish dram­edy has ma­te­rial you would not in­stantly as­so­ciate with a graphic novel but it has been taken from one. Al­though it has some sharp mo­ments, there’s not a lot of fun in the farce.

Ex­tras: ★ On the set of the pro­duc­tion fea­turette plus trailer.
