PG-13 | | Comedy, Drama, Fantasy
A London woman's love life and career both hinge, unknown to her, on whether or not she catches a train. We see it both ways, in parallel.
Peter Howitt is good friends with Brian May, of the band Queen, and gave him a copy of the finished script, asking him to write a song for the film. May penned the song "Another World," but was told a few months into production that they couldn't use it because another record company was co-financing the film. May kept the song and it became the thematic thread for his solo album "Another World" (1998).
So who are you on the rebound from?
James: A girl called Pamela. My whole life pivots around Pam and I breaking up.
Helen: When was that?
James: 1973, we were eight. I bloody loved that woman! No warning just up, gone, left me for someone else.
James: Gary Glitter! Gary ...
When James and Helen are sitting in the diner, they are drinking pink milkshakes. As the shots cut back and forth the shakes disappear and reappear. Also in the next scene James talks about drinking chocolate shakes, even though they were pink, not brown.
