Sarah Broadhurst's view...
Totally delicious romp set in a crumbling Irish mansion peopled by the eccentric gentry who save it by taking in an equally eccentric but very different bunch of film folk. It’s lightly satirical, wholly funny, gorgeously romantic and tenderly heartwarming. A pure joy.

He Loves Me Not... He Loves Me by Claudia Carroll
In the heart of County Kildare is Davenport Hall – a crumbling eighteenth-century mansion house, ancestral home to Portia Davenport, her beautiful younger sister Daisy and their dotty, eccentric mother, Lucasta. Disaster strikes when their father abandons the family, cleaning them out of the little cash they had managed to hold on to. But a ray of hope appears when Steve Sullivan, an old family friend and confirmed bachelor, suggests that they allow the hall to be used as the location for a major new movie. So Davenport Hall is taken over by the crème de la crème, including the self-centred Montana Jones, fresh out of rehab and anxious to kick-start her career, and Guy van der Post, a major sex symbol with an eye for Daisy. Throw in Ella Hepburn, Hollywood royalty and living legend, and soon there’s more sex and drama off-camera than on!
