Alex (Richard E. Grant) is a middle aged crazy professor. He longs for a simpler time. When he was in college, he staged a play in a remote English village and he wants to do so again. He manages to convince all of his former friends to give it a whirl. The production has multiple problems from the get-go and it is not a certainty that Alex's dream will succeed. What is more certain is that love may happen between members of the cast who meet again during rehearsals. Does this include Alex, too? Grant is a wonderful actor. One only has to see Jack and Sarah or A Merry War to appreciate his talents. He works very hard to make this film a success but the script is a meandering mess which seems pointless, at times. The other actors are all likable and the setting and costumes are likewise lovely, however. If you have any desire to see Grant at work, a bunch of beautiful scenery, and a couple of secondary love stories, then this film might tempt you for an evening. But, most folks will find it quite a boring outing, unfortunately.
