stagy farce
17 September 2017 | by malcolmgswSee all my reviews

This film is based on a play.You can see the 3 separate acts without difficulty.It is all very bland,and vaguely amusing.The story is very familiar,an unlikely famous novelist who is taken for granted by all her very selfish family .The best scene comes at the beginning of the film where a bemused Sam Kydd stands between the two arguing lovers.
