I love Bill Nighy and Emily Blunt but I have to say that this is one of their most disappointing films. I did feel that Rupert Grint didn’t quite know what to do and felt he was a weak link. Helena Bonham Carter was originally cast as Rose, but had to drop out due to scheduling conflicts with another film. One of my favourite scenes was when Emily Blunt’s character comes out of a supermarket and starts eating a packet of fig rolls!!!
