Hampstead (2019)



Critic Consensus: Hampstead plays matchmaker with a pair of talented veterans, but the sum of their efforts isn't enough to overcome a deeply mediocre story.

Movie Info

Though Emily (Diane Keaton) and Donald (Brendan Gleeson) live in the same idyllic London neighborhood of Hampstead, the worlds they inhabit could not be more different. She is an American widow occupying a posh apartment she can no longer afford and filling her time with charity work as she struggles to figure out a next step. He is a gruff Irish loner who lives off the land in a makeshift cabin and wants nothing more than to be left in peace. When his home is threatened by greedy real estate developers, Emily believes she has found her new cause--but gets more than she bargained for when unexpected romance blossoms. Based on an inspiring true story, Hampstead is a buoyant, sparklingly witty tale of two underdogs who took on the system and showed a nation that heart is where the home is.

Here Keaton reprises the role of the slightly kooky, klutzy, and lovable gal next door in this toasty crumpet of a film, set around London's scenic Hampstead Heath.

More often, though, Hopkins and writer Robert Festinger pile up the commonplaces hoping they'll result in actual characters.

June 14, 2019 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

The quasi-credible friendship that develops between Emily and Harry gives way to a less plausible romance. But the winning, sympathetic Keaton and an enjoyably puckish Gleeson largely sell the contrived setup.

It's a pleasant rattle of a film that makes fine use of its likable leads - Keaton's oddly regal klutziness matches well against Gleeson's gruff moral rectitude - and an appealing setting.

Eccentricity triumphs in the end, leaving Annie's ghost fluttering happily evermore.

Keaton and Gleeson are sweet together (I like the sweaty, studenty-vibe they create in Emma's attic). It's also nice to see London's housing crisis being discussed.
