HAMPSTEAD (2017): The Thing I Liked…

Hampstead is a story of unexpected love between a widow and a man who is technically homeless but not quite. It’s also a film you can watch without having to work too hard. The acting isn’t terrible and the story, though predictable, it moved along quite nicely and provided some small moments of amusement.

What I enjoyed most about Hampstead is the fact that Hampstead is a real place and one of the the most beautiful parts of London, England. It was great to see the beauty of Hampstead captured so well. Pparticularly during spring and summer.

Should I find myself watching it again, it will likely be so I can experience Hampstead the place on film once more. It’s worth it for that.

Another reason you you may watch could be if you’re a big fan of Keaton and /or Gleeson. Otherwise it’s an OK romance / comedy.

For me at least,  It’s Complicated (2009) is still probably my favourite of the mature romance category.

Happy Film Loving
