TAMARA DREWE ( M)
★★★ 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.
