| A deeply textured romantic comedy
Lunch with Charles was interesting on many levels and for many reasons. The film switches back at the beginning and the end from a crowded Hong Kong street to the wildly beautiful scenery of British Columbia. The mismatched lovers are also contrasts in culture and outlook.

The actors were outstanding and did a great job in keeping the situation which could have been somewhat silly from getting out of hand.

Nick Lea would have impressed me even if I was not already a fan. I like listening to comments about his acting from people who do not know who he is. In this case, most of the audience that attended were not Lea fans. I still heard favorable comments. The other leads were also well acted.

It's an entertaining movie with people portrayed whom for the most part you really wouldn't mind spending time.
