Barefoot

Jay is a bad boy – on probation and in a lot of debt. He has to find a suitable date to take to his brother’s wedding but he ends up taking a psychiatric patient he just met called Daisy.

In spite of her ‘condition’, Daisy’s naivety and delicate innocence touches both Jay and his family. He goes to the ends of the earth to protect her, and eventually to make her happy.

This film is more of a romance/drama than romance/comedy. However, it’s still worth adding to the rom com list as it meets many of the necessary criteria including boy meets girl and the dedication to creating a moving love story.

There is a restraint to these characters, who could have easily been overdone, and this restraint gives the film a certain touch of darkness, a touch of intimacy. The story line doesn’t sound overly original – yet this film does its own thing in its own way and ends up being terribly enjoyable.

This is definitely a film worth watching – take it out to dinner!
