Check out these six new character posters for I Give It A Year, the British rom-com we’ve been telling you about. I really want to see this. It looks funny in that way that Brits manage so well: sexy, self-deprecating but not self-conscious and with a heart. If you’ve seen Love, Actually you know what I’m talking about. The first rate cast is led by Rose Byrne, an Australian actress that seems to be everywhere these days and Brit Rafe Spall (son of great character actor Timothy Spall), along with Simon Baker (“The Mentalist”), Ricky Gervais’ partner in crime, Stephen Merchant (who will be seen this weekend making Halle Berry do stupid things in Movie 43), Anna Faris (also in Movie 43 – we won’t discuss what she’ll be doing), Jason Flemyng (X-Men: First Class, Stardust, Snatch, Lock, Stock & Two Smoking Barrels) and Minnie Driver. What could be not to like?
“Since they met at a party, ambitious high-flyer Nat (Byrne) and struggling novelist Josh (Spall) have been deliriously happy despite their differences. Josh is a thinker, Nat’s a doer ..but the spark between them is undeniable.
Their wedding is a dream come true, but family, friend and even the minister who marries them aren’t convinced that they can last. Josh’s ex-girlfriend, Chloe (Faris), and Nat’s handsome American client Guy (Baker), could offer attractive alternatives.
With their first anniversary approaching, neither wants to be the first to give up, but will they make it?”
I Give It A Year will be released in the UK on 8th February but still no word yet on a US release date. *sad face* We’ll keep you posted. In the meantime, tell us what you think in the comments.
