CGiii Comment

After his sleeper hit 10,000 KM, Carlos Marques-Marcet returns with a similarly bittersweet treatment of love and its vagaries. Eva (Oona Chaplin) and Kat (Natalia Tena) are a couple coming to terms with the death of their cat when Kat’s close friend Roger (David Verdaguer) comes to stay. Space is tight on their London houseboat and Eva is not best pleased to have the gregarious, womanising Roger impinging on their space, but then she hits on a plan that will bind the three of them together and sets about executing it with a renewed sense of purpose. Reuniting 10,000 KM’s Tena and Verdaguer, Anchor and Hope offers a fresh and funny rom-com with a twist. Boasting an impressive central performance from Chaplin and a delightful cameo from her real-life mother Geraldine, this is a film about the things we might just be prepared to do in the name of love.
