Ellie discovers love letters in her newspaper’s archive. She is enthralled by the passionate story the letters reveal and embarks on a quest to unearth the two lovers known only as ‘J’ and ‘Boot’.
The film flashes back to present the story of J and Boot as they embark on their affair. This is breezily watchable and hugely entertaining stuff featuring two individually compelling and flaw-free leads. The cinematography is as opulent as the production values and the direction smooth and discreet. ‘If there's a chink in your emotional armour, there's simply no resisting what this film has to offer.’ The Guardian
