Imagine Me & You by Ol Parker, 2006 (R)
In this unconventional romantic comedy that gives new meaning to the term "cold feet," bride-to-be Rachel (Piper Perabo) is love-struck — not with her groom, but rather with another woman who's a guest at their wedding. As she's marching down the aisle with her longtime sweetheart, Heck (Matthew Goode), Rachel is immediately bewitched by a beautiful guest (Lena Headey). But following her heart's true desire is hardly an easy proposition.
Alright, here goes my reputation, I loved this movie. Well, also because there is Lena Headey in it... but mostly because it was so cute, and somehow so familiar, avoiding the corny, with pretty real characters. Yes, the London that is portrayed in a little idyllic (except for the traffic), but it works. And also, I might say, having a movie portraying two women falling in love, without becoming a movie targeted to lesbian, that was something important, for the community, and for the rest of the people.
