Not Another Happy Ending

Romance and laughs that span fiction and reality.

Karen Gillan stars as a young Glasgow writer whose first novel is a success, thanks in part to the editing of her sympathetic but business-minded publisher (Stanley Weber). She comes down with a severe case of writer’s block while struggling with her second novel, and he resorts to drastic measures to get her unblocked. Quintessential romantic comedy with a sexy and skilful cast.
