Critic Reviews for Hampstead
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.
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.
