This is a 2007 British drama film set in Glasgow, and is based on a book of the same name.
The story is about a young man who suspects that his step-mother murdered his mother. He leaves home and goes to Glasgow where he basically starts stalking a woman who looks likes his real mother, and falls in love with her. There is more to it of course, but the story is still quite simple.
Everything about this slightly quirky film is good. The acting is superb, the photography is simple and efficient, the pacing is spot-on, and there is a good balance of drama and humour.
Also in the film is Sophia Myles who played Lady Penelope in the Thunderbirds film, and was also in Transformers: Age of Extinction (just for the money I am sure). Ewen Bremner had a small role as well.
There was not a lot of Glasgow in it, but it looks like a very decent place to visit someday.
So it was a good watch, not overly special at all, but a good way to fill in some time on a hot Sunday afternoon.
