OTT Domestic Drama
This is an excellent drama for those in the mood for an emotional roller coaster of consequences when the husband of a parenting guru asks for a divorce. Our heroine has made many mistakes in her marriage and as a mother, but she is still someone you root for. The cheating husband is, unlike his soon to be ex-wife, not a nice person to put it mildly. It has everything in it but the kitchen sink: Wedding, unplanned pregnancy, several career crises, break-ups, reconciliations, adultery, comeuppances, romance, friendship, estrangement from children, custody battles, alimony, lawyers, and of course a satisfying and happy ending for the people we like. Adding to the overall appeal of the film are the considerable talents of John Hannah, Rupert Graves, Eileen Atkins, and Caroline Catz of Doc Martin fame. It’s nothing like Rosamunde Pilcher would have written, but I found it very entertaining.
