A light-hearted tale about friendship and true love, don’t miss The Love Punch as it arrives this summer on Blu-ray and DVD on August 18, 2014, courtesy of eOne.
Written and directed by Joel Hopkins (Last Chance Harvey) this cheerful film stars a cast of iconic British comedy greats; BAFTA winner Emma Thompson (Saving Mr Banks, Nanny McPhee), as loving mother Kate; Pierce Brosnan (Die Another Day, Mamma Mia!), as businessman Richard; Celia Imrie (Bridget Jones’ Diary, The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel) as dotty Penelope; and Timothy Spall (Enchanted, Harry Potter) as neighbour and friend Jerry.
Richard and Kate are a divorced couple whom their best friends and neighbours, Jerry and Penelope, would love to see get back together. As Richard is about to retire, he learns that his company is under investigation.
Thanks to an unscrupulous financier at the bank, his pension fund has now been siphoned away. Richard vows to fix the situation and persuades Kate to join him on a French Riviera adventure. The divorced duo hatch a plot to gate-crash the banker’s wedding and steal the $10million diamond for his bride to be. As their biting banter continues maybe the flames of their former relationship have not been fully extinguished…
This breezy romantic comedy will be a must have for your summer nights in, when The Love Punch hits the shelves on Blu-ray, DVD and to download on August 18, 2014.
