Leap Year (2010)
Never close to scaling the heights of the 1934 classic “It Happened One Night” on which this screenplay is loosely based, “Leap Year” is nonetheless a near two hour entertaining diversion on a dark winter’s night.
Adams is the young woman who heads to Ireland to ask her boyfriend to accept her wedding proposal on leap day, when tradition supposedly holds that men cannot refuse such a proposal for marriage. Her plans are interrupted by a series of events and are further complicated when she hires an Irish innkeeper to take her to her boyfriend in Dublin. Four years into the relationship and somewhat shaken by the gift of earrings over dinner when she’d anticipated an engagement ring, her devotion to this “prize drip” is somewhat bewildering but persevere and there are enough entertaining moments to behold that emphasise Miss Adams comedic skills.
Her co-star Matthew Goode was somewhat dismissive about the project, but the film nonetheless recouped its production costs and Adams was consistently singled out for critical praise.
Agreeably “light froth,” the film demands little more than a smile and a chuckle, and most viewers were happy to oblige.
Linguistics professor Louise Banks leads an elite team of investigators when gigantic spaceships touchdown in 12 locations around the world.
As nations teeter on the verge of global war, Banks and her crew must race against time to find a way to communicate with the extra-terrestrial visitors. Hoping to unravel the mystery, she takes a chance that could threaten her life and quite possibly all of mankind.
Adam’s performance is excellent, and her gradual understanding of the aliens’ non linear sense of time provides her character with a sense of the future. There is a sense of acute sadness in some of these visions but she remains undeterred about her path in life.
An undoubted box office success, the movie garnered seven Oscar nominations. Adams herself received positive reviews for her performance, and the emotional balance she brought to her characterisation.

The American actress Amy Adams, known for both her comedic and dramatic performances, is among the highest-paid actresses in the world. Her accolades include two Golden Globes and nominations for five Academy Awards and six British Academy Film Awards, yet personally speaking, apart from her cameo in “Catch me if you can” (2002) and a few other movies, I remain largely unfamiliar with her work. Nothing deliberate on my part you see, just one of those things.
Nevertheless, she seems a sensible lass, maintaining that “the more that people know about me, the less they’ll believe me and my characters.” She attracts little gossip or tabloid attention, and strives to keep a healthy work-life balance with her husband and child.
At the end of the day, it’s only a job innit? – albeit a rather well paid one………………..
