Greetings good folk, Addi here. Back in August, I went to see the latest Richard Curtis film ‘About Time’. It was fabulous. Curtis is one of my favourite film directors/ writers and he definitely didn’t let his rep down this time. For those of you who are unfamiliar with him, in a Richard Curtis film, you nearly always get the awkward, geeky, slightly foolish main character- who still manages to be sweet and charming at the same time- the love interest, and a couple of eccentric supporting characters.
‘About Time’ was no exception, but still Curtis finds a new approach or twist to make things interesting. It was a gorgeous romantic comedy- incredibly funny, as you’d expect- and it completely charmed me. If you haven’t seen it, I strongly advise that you do so. You should also make sure you see Richard Curtis’ other films, because I haven’t seen one yet that I haven’t liked. I particularly recommend ‘Love Actually’, ‘Notting Hill’, ‘Four Weddings and a Funeral’, ‘Bridget Jones’ Diary’ and ‘Blackadder’ (TV show). Also, as a bonus, Hugh Grant features in many of his movies, and who doesn’t love Hugh Grant? (if you’re saying to yourself ‘who’s Hugh Grant?’, I may slap you)
Love love love his work and I’m looking forward to finding out what his next project will be. I haven’t been to the cinema since, but if anyone has any recommendations or reviews, I’d love to read them.
