HAMP­STEAD

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - SEVEN DAYS/FILM - DC

Di­rected by Joel Hop­kins. Star­ring Diane Keaton, Bren­dan Glee­son, Les­ley Manville, Ja­son Watkins, James Nor­ton

A widow (Keaton) ro­mances an ec­cen­tric squat­ter (Glee­son) in Richard Cur­tis’s ver­sion of north Lon­don. No­body with any­thing other than ice in their soul could fail to be en­tranced at the no­tion of a rom­com star­ring Bren­dan and Keaton. Just look at that lovely still of them sit­ting idyl­li­cally on Hamp­stead Heath. Now wave it in front of your eyes for an hour or two. That ex­pe­ri­ence will be richer than any­thing in Joel Hop­kins’s un­der­pow­ered screen filler. 12A cert, gen re­lease, 102 min
