Watermelon

This is really a TV movie and a short one at that. It's directed by the English-born Kieran Walsh (When Brendan met Trudy). Anna Friel finishes college and moves to London where she meets a guy who looks like James McEvoy except he's not. She gets pregnant and returns to Dublin. She meets up with her old Irish boyfriend but the English guy follows her. Yes, it's another Irish chick flick. Nothing interesting happens, the characters are all nice, and it's set in the Celtic Tiger era. We don't care about the story and the movie is too bland. Then there's a stupid finale set in a trendy bar that has probably closed down now.
