With her debut novel, Happy Ending , JANE LOCKHART (Karen Gillan) pulled off that rare double critical acclaim and mainstream success. But now, with just the last chapter of the follow-up novel to write, she encounters crippling writer s block. She has no idea how her story ends... This is not good news for her publisher, TOM. His company is up against the wall financially and the only thing that will save him is a hit, in the form of Jane s next novel. When he discovers that his most important author is blocked, Tom knows he has to unblock her or he s finished. Everyone knows you have to be miserable to write well, and Tom realises that the only way he s going to get her to finish the novel is to make her life a misery. With the help of his best friend and cynical, child-hating high school teacher, RODDY, he sets about trying to dismantle the things in Jane s life that make her happy. Meanwhile, Jane s block spirals out of control to the point where her fictional characters, twiddling their thumbs in the not-happening novel, intrude into her real life. Her heroine, DARSIE, is terrified that Jane won t give her the ending she desires because Jane has given up on her own happy ending. Will Tom, or Darsie, manage to get Jane writing again, and create a happy ending for everyone?

And this movie also struggles with an identity crisis. It can't settle between a romantic comedy or a quirky independent film about writing, so it fails to nail on either. This makes things like sappy rom-com hijynx feel out of place, and glosses over everything about writer's block and the creative process.
And curiously, why is this product description written about the pusblisher's character when the main character of this movie is clearly the author?
Just like in real life.
Great flick minus one star for poor story line.
Male lead never pays for or even admits all of his bad behavior, and female lead never has to learn to stop throwing tantrums whenever she doesn't get 100% of what she wants, so I guess they're perfect for each other?

I was already fond of Scotland and this film is filmed on a low budget in Glasgow with Scottish actors. Stanley Weber gives it a French touch, a remembrance of the old Scottish and French alliance (against the English).
As a bonus there is the trailer and interviews with the director and producer.
