Scott Hardie: “It ruled.”

We know roughly how the plot will go; what surprises us is the warmth and eloquence employed in the process. That’s appropriate, since he’s a flatterer and she’s a playwright, but it reminds us how badly most romantic comedies slack off when it comes to what a man and woman falling in love should say to one another, as though desirous stares were enough. Keaton is luminous and honest, and it’s no mystery why all the men in the movie fall for her. It would have been better without rushing the ending so much, but it was still a joy.
