Hugh Grant has made a return to rom coms, starring in The Rewrite as a washed up, once great screenwriter doing his best to rediscover any passion for life.
Once an Oscar winner, Keith Michaels (Grant) accepts a teaching position as a substandard American university. After a rough start, made worse by a few too many glasses of wine, Keith finds redemption through romance, falling for Holly Carpenter (played by Marisa Tomei).
Bonus fact: it’s been twenty years since Grant shot to fame in Four Weddings and a Funeral. Twenty years - our apologies if you suddenly feel much, much older.
