Music and Lyrics
Hugh Grant plays the very charming Alex Fletcher, a super sensational pop-star of the eighties whose career takes a dip after the rock-band he has been a part of, split up. In a desperate attempt to get his career back, he releases an album which sells only 50,000 copies and is a complete flop. Still living in his old memories, the current music sensation Cora Corman (Haley Bennett) approaches him to write a song for her--evidently when she was 7, his music had helped her to get through her parent's divorce. Haley is so cute in her role as Cora--the innocent faced, very skinny, blonde-haired, utterly romantic at heart teen sensation who rocks the world with her music.
Sophie (Drew Barrymore) has the job of watering plants at Alex's apartment but actually is a wonderful writer and poet. Between love and heartaches, together Alex and Sophie create a super hit song for Cora and Alex through his music ad lyrics, eventually wins Sophie's heart in the end.
A very light and fun romantic comedy, it brought great inspiration to me on a dull day and I love the lyrics and music of the song Alex and Sophie wrote together.....all I wanna do, is to find a way back into love...brilliant!
