a sweet little film
I am a huge fan of Bill Nighy who stars in this quirky film, a tale of a politically-charged May-December romance that moves from England to Iceland where Nighy, a high ranking member of the Exchequer's staff, is attending a G8 meeting. I first saw Nighy in the BBC production "State of Play" in which he plays the editor of a newspaper. Then he showed up in "Notes on a Scandal" and "Pirate Radio." Each of these rolls is different and watching him move from comedy to drama and back is a real pleasure. Put it on your list.
