From the vaults of British television comes a comedy gem starring two consummate actors who were also a couple in real life: Dame Judi Dench (Iris, Shakespeare In Love) and Michael Williams (Educating Rita). They play a pair of middle-aged, dating-games dropouts as wary of romance as they are perfect for each other. Laura, a brainy translator, and Mike, a shy landscape gardener, are introduced by Laura's glamorous younger sister, who is intent on finding a mate for her spinsterish sibling. Awkward and rumpled, Mike drives an ole wreck and fails to impress the prickly Laura. Still, Mike senses an opportunity, if only he can find the courage to pursue it. From this unpromising beginning, the pair lurch and swerve their way to companionship, friendship, andfinally, love. This is a fine, funny, and all-too-real romance.
