Juliet, Naked: Movie Review

Smart, mature and very funny comedy-drama.
There is a unique quality to Nick Hornby movie adaptations: most of them are just as good as, if not better than the source material. I’m a huge Nick Hornby fan, and I am constantly delighted by how good the adaptations turn out to be. Juliet, Naked is no different, with a really well written screenplay which taps into the comedic, musically-inclined pathos that Hornby is famous for.   2018
