Blow Dry


(out of 5)

discovers she’s dying of a terminal illness and wants to make up for past relationship problems. Her ex-husband (), still bitter over her leaving him for another woman () and starting her own salon, abandoned his hopes of winning a hairstyling contest years earlier in which all three were originally supposed to participate. Their son (), helps dad run his barber shop and hopes to help heal the wounds of the past until Richardson decides to enter the UK’s hairdressing championships when it comes to their town. The obstacle, though, is the attendance of the twice-reigning champion () who is still in the game and willing to do absolutely anything to win. This charming comedy is a run-of-the-mill heartwarmer but is elevated beyond its humdrum trappings by an excellent cast and spritely pace.
