Love and Other Disasters
Emily Jackson, or Jacks to her friends, works in fashion, lives with her friend Peter, casually dates her ex-boyfriend James.
Everyone in this film is on the lookout for love – Peter wants it, their friend Tallulah wants it, the sexy photographic assistant Paolo wants it, and Jacks doesn’t know it, but she wants it too.
Jacks is a matchmaker – she meets Paolo and thinks he’s perfect for Peter. But Paolo thinks he’s perfect for Jacks, and Peter has a fantasy man who he thinks is perfect for him. James thinks he’s the one who is perfect for Jacks. Tallulah desperately wants some-one to be perfect for her! Hence ‘love and other disasters’.
At first I thought this film was trying too hard to be cool, with all her gay friends, and artists, but once I got used to the style, I did enjoy the characters. I love a fast paced, fast dialogue movie and intend to watch it again.
