Lol. I'll let someone else get it, since I didn't recognize the screen grab right away and wouldn't have got it if not for your response to tboe77...but I now know what it is.

Yeah, I never actually saw any of those movies, but I recognized the child's hair colour and style from various movie posters I've seen over the years. The title 'Children of the Damned' popped into my head, so I took a guess. I am certainly not surprised that I was wrong, so I don't feel the need to kick myself over this one.

There you go! Nice eyebrows, eh?

A mildly pleasant romance with some comedy. Once only for me but my wife liked it better.

I enjoyed it for the same reasons. It's not very deep, but it's charming as all get out. Emily Blunt and Ewan McGregor have a very nice chemistry. But it doesn't hurt that I simply adore Emily Blunt.

Looky here!
