Love Me Till Monday review

Modern romance...

Bookended by scenes on a bus, Justin Hardy’s no-budget slip of British romantic fancy is a smooth charmer without enough sense of direction. Georgia Maguire stars as Becky, a marketing drone in an unfeasibly sunny Reading who, between nights out with colleagues and unsatisfying dates, emerges as a passenger in her own life.

Hardy’s episodic plot evokes that 20-something drift too effectively, lacking the story or certainty of comic/dramatic tone required for sustenance. His promise lies in the incidentals: between Maguire’s winning lead and the lively portraits of workmates on the lash, there’s a sitcom in the making here.
