Rate this:
Tamara Drewe was born and raised in Ewedown, a quiet community on the outskirts of London dominated by a writer's colony run by Nicholas Hardiment, a best-selling novelist who specializes in crime fiction, and his wife Beth. When Tamara left Ewedown, she was a plain and awkward teenager, but when she returns home for the first time in years, the locals are surprised to discover that time (and a nose job) have turned her into an attractive and alluring woman, and she's gained a share of money and fame thanks to a successful newspaper column. Tamara has returned to Ewedown after the death of her mother in order to refurbish the family home and put it on the market. Before long, Tamara finds herself pursued by three men from her past -- Andy Cobb, her former boyfriend who has been hired to help fix up the house; Ben Sergeant, the swaggering drummer with a local indie rock band flirting with larger success; and Nicholas, who is chronically unfaithful to his wife and sees an opportunity with the neighborhood girl who was infatuated with him in her teens.

I was disappointed in this movie. My favourite characters were a couple of spunky tweens who are looking for some adventure.

A film with famous (and soon to be) people; based on a graphic novel; inspired by Thomas Hardy, A lovely romp, with every character being interesting.

I enjoyed this movie although it didn't take the normal route of American films.It keeps you guessing up to the end even though it's intent is to leave you smiling.Gemma Arterton is a physical marvel and a good actress, worth watching just for that.As has been said,quirky characters as only the British can do,but one young lady almost steals the show.Jessica Barden wants to meet her idol from a rock band any which way she can,and her efforts leave a path of destruction for all concerned.Rebellious youth at it's most incoherent.

This is one of the lesser films from UK director Stephen Frears. Silly characters and the lack of a strong plot make this film uninteresting and a tad boring.

A highly enjoyably comedy about a bunch of literary people and their various associates. These people really know how to mess up their lives. The story is compelling, even though it's unsurprising. The characters and the situations they create make all the humor, which is a credit to the writer and director. The acting is very good, too.

A delightful little tale. And I'm not just talking about Tamara Drewe. I like this movie mainly because of it's connection with writing. And romance. 1st 8/11/11 @ 9:01a post overslept for work.
