An English Amélie, if you will, this whimsical modern fairytale spins a sweet, brightly-hued yarn about Bella Brown, an OCD librarian with a dreadful fear of flora, who almost accidentally cultivates a support group of amiable eccentrics (and one cantankerous neighbor) and discovers her own true voice.

film synopsis

Once upon a time, there lived a young woman named Bella Brown. Bella worked in a library, but it was only temporary, because she was writing a book... Well, not writing, exactly, but she meant to, as soon as she discovered what it should be about.

Bella rented a nice house next door to a grumpy old widower, Alfie Stevenson, a miserable and misanthropic chap who routinely berated her about the deplorable state of her garden and refused to accept her crippling fear of flora as an excuse. When Bella had the temerity to hire away his cook simply as a way to circumvent Alfie's habitual bullying of the poor man, already strained relations reach a nadir. Yet Fate has a way of reconciling even the least congruent personalities...

An English Amélie, if you will, this whimsical modern fairytale coasts along on its quirky, oddball inventiveness and the not inconsiderable charm of Jessica Brown Findlay (Lady Sybil in Downton Abbey) as Bella. Tom Wilkinson, as the haughty horticulturalist next door, adds a dash of salt to this sweet treat.
