Two lives unravel for a PR executive, one in which she
catches an early train home to catch her boyfriend having an affair, and another in which she catches the train. However, both lives happen to lead to the same destiny.
Though Gwyneth Paltrow delivers a convincing British
accent, the twin stories are only possible to follow when one of the Gwyneth's get a haircut.
This British rom-com has moments of wit and charm, but is
unfortunately flawed because of underwritten characters, one of which we get treated to twice.
