A Novel (Movie Tie-In)
H ector Simon Pegg is a sad psychiatrist, unable to take pleasure in his "satisfactory" life. He lives in a giant flat by the Thames, his girlfriend Rosamund Pike cooks, does the laundry and offers him mind-blowing sex. What Hector needs is to get away from it all. So he takes his bespoke brand of affluent self-pity international, dropping in on "China", "Africa" we're not told where and LA to find out what makes people happy. He'll write the answers up into a cute little book later. Director Peter Chesholm's film is stubbornly naive. There is so much here — jolly Africans; wise Buddhists, the innate likability of Simon Pegg — that we're expected to accept without question.
