0NE MORE KISS (12)
UCI, Virgin, from tomorrow **
SARAH (Valerie Edmond) returns from the Big Apple to spend time with her ex -boyfriend, Sam (Gerry Butler), who is married to Charlotte (Valerie Gogan) and running a restaurant in Berwick. Her father, Frank (James Cosmo), sits at home, staring at the wallpaper.
Charlotte is selfish, jealous and bitchy. Sam is weak, charming and dull. Frank is proud, sentimental and miserable. Sarah, or course, is the life and soul, except she's dying.
Even as a teleplay, this would be considered a waste of decent talent.
Sarah is too good for this world.
What can she do? Mess up Sam's marriage, make her dad cry, leave a message of hope for those who remain?
Suzie Halewood's script starts from nowhere and leads nowhere.
Edmond looks so cheery you suspect the plot is a hoax and there's going to be a twist at the end.
