Lawless Heart

LawlessHeartBB.5

(out of 5)


Various characters interact in this unimpressive but not terrible British melodrama. After the death of a local restaurateur, his boyfriend () takes comfort in the arms of a woman, his best friend returns home for the funeral and finds romance of his own, and his sister tries to decide what to do with the money the deceased left behind. Even though she’s not legally obliged, she feels her late brother’s boyfriend deserves the money considering they were life partners; her husband () feels quite the opposite. Told from three different points of view, this film features terrific acting (especially a Simone Signoret-like turn from the lovely ) but the story generates very little interest from the viewer.
