One of the best romances of the year (as described by the movie cover) is really not that romantic at all. This is another one of those movies where a women is in a serious relationship and yet still plays the field (because women are now taking the place of philandering men). Think Twilight but with Irish accents. Don’t get me wrong, I love, love, love Saoirse Ronan. She did an excellent job of acting and she is gorgeous beyond words (plus the accent makes her even prettier)… but this movie had a crappy love story. I love how it starts off, but then it completely devolves when she goes back to revisit her home country. Then it just ends very abruptly, despite it’s long running-time. I may just be old-fashioned but a lady jumping from dude to dude like she’s at a buffet table does not make a good romance film.
