Any comedy that starts with a tragedy is going to have an issue with tone, but I have to give it to Love Sarah. It manages to find the silver lining here and it’s an amazing thing to see.
Following the death of Sarah — a chef who was about to open her own bakery — her daughter enlists her grandmother and a friend from the past to make her mother’s dream come true.
Director Eliza Schroeder creates a dazzling, adorable little comedy, which shows you can always find something beautiful in the wake of struggle.
It’s vibrant, and the cakes and desserts they put on display certainly kept me hungry while I was entertained. It’s one of those movies that you can always rely on to put you in a good mood.
The pair of female performances were fantastic. Shelley Conn is an incredible central actor, and Celia Imrie is absolutely elegant as grandmother Mimi.
This is a film I can see myself revisiting, and it left me with a wonderful feeling. It’s a lovely little gem.
