What some people think about this movie...

This is a very sweet, simple movie about a bumbling temp receptionist, Polly, who becomes enamored of her French Gallery Curator female boss. Polly's attempts to fit in with the European high-brow ways of her object of affection are extremely humorous. I think everyone can relate to Polly's awkwardness. She becomes a somewhat innocent voyeur of her boss' & her boss' girlfriend's relationship with difficult consequences. A really great movie. Very low-key & with one of the best endings I've ever seen in a movie. Very unpredictable & satifying. Highly recommended.
