Then Came You

Romantics should be mesmerised by this enchanting film that surrounds an American widow from Nantucket who intends visiting 20 locations from her favourite 20 movies and finds love with an Innkeeper in Scotland.

She wants to make new memories and describes herself as “blonde, 5 feet 6 inches, of a certain age and ordinary in every way”. But what is her hidden agenda in visiting Scotland? She gave up her dreams once for a man – should she do so again?

Craig Ferguson and Kathie Lee Gifford are absolutely adorable as Howard and Annabelle, the couple who meet, enjoy one another’s company, and playfully follow to see where the flourishing attraction leads. Elizabeth Hurley has a supporting role as Howard’s fiancée Clare – is she only after his assets or are her intentions being misconstrued by his friends?

Then Came You is a delightfully humorous, feel-good movie overloaded with Scottish charm and wit that unashamedly feels like a 90-minute cinematic travel brochure owing to the picturesque filming locations.

Audiences should have just as much fun watching this film as the cast obviously had in making it. (MMo)
