The F Word
The reinvention of Daniel Radcliffe continues apace. This Canadian romcom adapts popular stage play ‘Toothpaste and Cigars’ into a low-budget but, according to early reviews, highly enjoyable tale of friendship and its complicated offshoots. Radcliffe plays Wallace, a young man who develops an increasing crush on Chantry (Zoe Kazan) who, unfortunately, already has a perfectly good boyfriend of her own. Director Michael Dowse did a great job with the goofy, unexpectedly heartfelt hockey comedy ‘Goon’, so expect a similar blend of swearing, slapstick, insight and emotion here. Reviews out of Toronto likened the film to ‘500 Days of Summer’, so expect an old-school romantic comedy with a hipster twist.
