A love story as exciting and slow as a lazy river: Hampstead film review!

This is a review of Hampstead, a romance which is now available to watch in cinemas.

My Thoughts

I found this film too slow and sedentary. The uneventful plot of a middle class woman, Emily (Diane Keaton) helping, befriending and falling in love with a tramp, Donald (Brendan Gleeson) was not my kettle of fish. After having the pleasure of seeing it twice, I am in no rush to see it again.

I found their love story nice but rather creepy. Who could ever say that their relationship started with a pair of binoculars and a spying? The fact that she regularly spied on him from her attic was off putting, even if it did end up bringing them together and happily finding where they belonged.

I just felt that the time spent watching Hampstead (twice) was a waste of time and could have been used for better things. I didn’t find the film captivating either – everything was too “old” for me.

What I do applaud about this film is how they perceived the relationship between Emily and Donald. Two unliklies (according to society) find a way to make it work.

 Last Note

I was very disappointed by this film and I would not see it again.

Star Rating

I would give Hampstead 2 stars overall.

Not a good film in my opinion and lucky to get two!

Until the next review…

Bye guys 🙂
