Starring: Andie Macdowell, Imelda Staunton, Anna Chancellor, Bill Patterson, Kenny Doughty
Review by Nina Katungi


SYNOPSIS:

Kate is a forty-something single woman still hoping to find a man and have a family. Every week Kate and her two best friends Molly and Janine meet up to share stories from their “sad excuses for a love life”. A few days later however, Kate unexpectedly meets twenty-five year old Jed. At first it‘s no more than a fling but their relationships develops into something surprisingly serious. Kate is happy and in love but her friends are less than amused. Molly and Janine question the couple’s relationship because of the age difference. Unfortunately Molly and Janine’s opinions don’t change, rather the contrary - lines are crossed and things take a turn for the worse. Kate finds herself stuck in middle and doesn’t know what to do. Jed may be twenty years her junior but he could be the love of her life.

REVIEW:

A lot of people may have missed this film when it came out because there wasn’t really a lot of publicity for it. I stumbled upon “Crush” at the DVD store. I like picking unknown films especially when there’s a good cast involved. I enjoyed the movie, it didn’t blow me away or anything but it’s definitely a good, Sunday evening movie, for the ladies. I have also watched the film more than once, I’ve stumbled upon it many a times on the television and it tends to draw me in every time. I find it to be an easy-going and entertaining film to watch.

Kate (Macdowell), Molly (Chancellor), and Janine (Staunton) are best friends. They’re all single and successful women in their forties but the one thing missing in their lives are men. Each week they meet and gossip about their pathetic love lives. Molly is a doctor and a divorcee that only falls for men with money. Janine’s the Chief of police in their town and although it’s a ballsy job to have it seems clear that her confidence lies only within her job department. She is blatantly a failure when it comes to men. Kate, who is the headmistress of an English high-school, doesn’t even have stories to tell - it’s obviously been a very long time since she’s been out with a man.

While attending an acquaintances funeral, Kate stumbles upon Jed (Doughty), the new organ player. She is taken by this young, fresh, breath of air. Jed used to be one of Kate’s students twenty years ago, which makes it clearly obvious that he is much younger than her. Despite the age difference there is a clear attraction and they immediately fall in lust after one another. Kate blurts out the news at a rather inappropriate time to her friends and to her surprise their reaction is rather a negative one than a positive one. Kate continues to see Jed but decides to keep it to herself. Her friends eventually catch her and in result turn out to be even more disappointed. Kate and Jed have become more than a fling and Kate decides that inviting her friends over to meet Jed may help. Molly and Janine accept Kate’s invitation to have dinner. The dinner doesn’t really go as Kate planned. It is clear that Jed is different and younger than the rest but does it really seem to matter? Both of them have fallen for each other and neither of them can see what the fuss is all about. Molly is determined to break the two apart and tries endlessly to convince Kate that Jed is no good for her but Kate refuses to listen.

Time goes by and three of them see less and less of each other. The difference of opinions has divided their friendship. Jed and Kate decide to get married but there’s one thing, up until now, Kate’s has kept their relationship a secret. They live in a small English town where everybody knows each others business and since nobody’s found out about them it’s obvious that Kate’s doing a pretty good job hiding it. It seems Kate is unsure herself and finally seeks guidance from her estranged friends. A series of unexpected events follow and in the end Kate is left with a huge amount of sorrow but happiness too.

The writer/director John Mckay has yet to release any more feature films. Before “Crush” Mckay wrote and directed two shorts, which he both got nominated for and won awards for. Since “Crush” he’s been writing for an array of television shows. Perhaps we’ll see him on the big screen once again. I think he has potential and maybe he’ll prove me right sometime in the future.
