All in all-if all is meant moderately-the story leaves an agreeable aftertaste, which lingers longer than we expected.

Beautifully filmed, well acted and a topical reminder that success isn't about how much money you have, but how you live - and boil your eggs.

Perky, delicately balanced rom-com-drama with nicely evoked period, and likeable characters.
