Review of Hector and The Search for Happiness
Quite enjoyable film with Simon Pegg and Rosamund Pike. Some nice graphics and occasionally quite thoughtful - though at other times really a bit stupid (the Pegg character goes to 'Africa', and it matters so little that the country he is in doesn't even have a name, as if Africa is enough to locate and characterise it). Nice to see Toni Collette - I had no idea she was Australian, she seemed so British in Wanderlust.
It's based on a French novel, and I'm sort of wondering if that's worth reading.
Watched on Amazon Prime...don't think this saw the light of day anywhere else.
