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.

This is not your usual romantic comedy. This one includes tales of mischief and adultery in a small English village. Tamara Drewe (Gemma Arterton), the town's ugly duckling has returned home after her mother has died to make the house ready for sale. She is a successful journalist who has been transformed with a nose job. The neighbor, Nicholas Hardiment (Roger Allam) is a successful novelist. He and his wife (Tamsin Greig) run a country retreat for a variety of authors who come for the peace and quiet. Glen (Bill Camp) writes about the life of Thomas Hardy, a life we find ourselves comparing to Hardiment.

Tamara has her choice of lovers, both old and new. These include rock drummer teenage heart throb Ben (Dominic Cooper) and her old boyfriend Andy (Luke Evans) who dumped her when her nickname was "beaky."

The movie was quirky and enjoyable. Mischief maker Jody (Jessica Barden) and fan of Ben provides us with the wild card excitement.

F-bomb, brief sex, rear nudity

"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.

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.
