A young man’s attempts to turn his life around don’t go as expected in Anthony Wilcox’s charming take on the rom-com.
Carter has had a bad year. Since breaking up with his girlfriend Kelly 11 months earlier, he has found himself unemployed and sleeping on his brother’s floor. In an effort to turn his life around, Carter decides to win his ex back. The only problem is he doesn’t have her phone number. His fortune seems to take an encouraging turn when he runs into Kelly’s movie star brother Aaron on the tube, but when the egotistical Aaron requests a favour in return for his sister’s digits, Carter finds himself on a wild, and potentially criminal, goose chase around London. Having worked as an assistant director on a number of productions including The End of the Affair and The Deep Blue Sea, Hello Carter marks the directing debut of Anthony Wilcox, whose wealth of experience shines through in this warm, witty and effortlessly charming take on the romcom.
