Hugh Grant makes his film comeback in The Rewrite

Hugh Grant has made a return to rom coms, starring in The Rewrite as a washed up screenwriter doing his best to rediscover any passion for life. 

Once an Oscar winner, Keith Michaels (Grant) accepts a teaching position at 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 older.
