Ida grön 4.0

This is a quite nice film. I don't know if I think it deserves all the "Academy Award" attention it got but it's good. I like it so don't get me wrong but this film didn't leave me with a great impression.

Tiffany and Pat are both imperfect, which you get immediately, but immediately likable. This is not a normal fairy tail, it shows you that nothing is perfect in a romance in a very different way than other rom-com's do.

Pat: You have poor social skills. You have a problem.
Tiffany: I have a problem? You say more inappropriate things than appropriate things.
