Though Emily (Diane Keaton) and Donald (Brendan Gleeson) live in the same idyllic London neighborhood of Hampstead, the worlds they inhabit could not be more different. She is an American widow occupying a posh apartment she can no longer afford and filling her time with charity work as she struggles to figure out a next step. He is a gruff Irish loner who lives off the land in a makeshift cabin and wants nothing more than to be left in peace. When his home is threatened by greedy real estate developers, Emily believes she has found her new cause—but gets more than she bargained for when unexpected romance blossoms. Based on an inspiring true story, Hampstead is a buoyant, sparklingly witty tale of two underdogs who took on the system and showed a nation that heart is where the home is. With Lesley Manville.

"Keaton and Gleeson are sweet together (I like the sweaty, studenty-vibe they create in Emma's attic). It's also nice to see London's housing crisis being discussed." - Charlotte O'Sullivan, London Evening Standard

"Keaton's terrific, and it's sweet and airy and so unhurried you really feel like you've had a nice afternoon in the long grasses and cool breezes on the edge of the city." - Jason Solomons, TheWrap

"Eccentricity triumphs in the end, leaving Annie's ghost fluttering happily evermore." - Sandra Hall, Sydney Morning Herald
