The Independent Culture

Michelle Williams's mildly depressed wannabe author is married to Seth Rogen's slightly juvenile cookbook writer. But then she meets free-spirited Daniel (Luke Kirby).

He's the type who pulls a rickshaw to the beach in the morning – for the sheer hell of it. Sarah Polley's contemporary Brief Encounter, set in Toronto, lacks David Lean's masterpiece's poignancy. However, as always, Williams is compelling.
