Us rating: ***

Gemma Arterton (Clash of the Titans) plays a hip London journalist who returns to her crunchy country roots in this charming comedy. Showing off a new, perky nose (and often dressing in short shorts), Tamara unsettles the sleepy hamlet with her lusty ways, ricocheting between her hunky first fling (Luke Evans) and a famed drummer (delicious Dominic Cooper). It's a tale for every ugly duckling who dreams of going back home and strutting her swan self.
