Absolutely charming and extremely British romance about a love so powerful it defies the laws of the universe. Lots to treasure here, but to me, nothing beats the opening scene, which establishes a deep connection between a pilot and a dispatcher as the former's plane is going down. Talk about a meet-cute!
Still wonderful. As the parent of a daughter who's now roughly Riley's age, I appreciate the film's insight into a child's difficult but necessary transition into a more complex emotional being. You work very hard to keep your kids happy all the time-- parents are Joy, essentially-- but you learn you can't manage their emotions.
