5.0 out of 5 stars Sheer delight
The sleepy English village of Ewedown becomes quite lively when former ugly duckling Tamara Drewe comes back to town. Now sporting a perky new nose and sexy Daisy Dukes, Tamara quickly becomes involved with a rock star, an older man, and her childhood sweetheart. With a large cast and many subplots, the story of what really goes on behind the quaint postcard-pretty closed...

1.0 out of 5 stars This has Drawn too Much Press
Boy, I was looking forward to a good English movie and I sincerely say, having read the critics and seen the movie, I can not come to terms at all the good media coverage tis movie had had. It is beautifully shot and makes one want to jump on an aircraft to enjoy the English countryside, but the film is one of the worst British film of then year. It has an abstract...

The sleepy English village of Ewedown becomes quite lively when former ugly duckling Tamara Drewe comes back to town. Now sporting a perky new nose and sexy Daisy Dukes, Tamara quickly becomes involved with a rock star, an older man, and her childhood sweetheart. With a large cast and many subplots, the story of what really goes on behind the quaint postcard-pretty closed doors is full of laughs and tender moments and even some cattle stampedes.

This movie is completely charming. The characters are all believable, the setting is idyllic, and the script is clever and quirky. All of the adult shenanigans are witnessed - and complicated - by a pair of adolescent girls, a kind of comical Greek chorus who tie it all together. If you like good, indie British films, you'll love this one.

Livraison rapide et parfaite sans bris. Le film est très bon, c'est surprenant. L'histoire n'est pas redondante. Enfin un film qui fini bien.

"Paperback writer (paperback writer)
Dear Sir or Madam, will you read my book?
It took me years to write, will you take a look?"
-- The Beatles

Based on a graphic novel this story plays more like a Greek Tragedy. It does not quit fit into any category. Still you will find yourself intrigued and kibitzing. Oh what a tangled web we weave.

Local girl Tamara (Gemma Arterton) gets a new proboscis and body to match. After making good as a journalist she returns to her hometown and plays havoc with the local men folk. That is not all that is happing in the town. To name a couple, we have a married writer with a wondering uh...err... eye, and a couple of schoolgirls playing out their fantasies.

Be prepared for some colorful descriptive words and some suggestive scenes. The only poignant scene that sort of puts a damper on the presentation is when a main character (four-legged) is dispatched while having a little fun, even if it is relevant to the plot.

I only watched the Blu-ray version so I cannot compare. However the voice over commentary is worth taking the time to listen to. I also have not read the novel but will have to to be sure I did not miss anything.

The Girl Most Likely To . . .

It is beautifully shot and makes one want to jump on an aircraft to enjoy the English countryside, but the film is one of the worst British film of then year. It has an abstract plot, except for a broken nose, the story has no direction, the characters are flat as a Shrove Day pancake and I feel tat you should save your money for the King's Speech or Black Swan.
