Love and Other Disasters (2006)

Brittany Murphy … Emily ‘Jacks’ Jackson
Matthew Rhys … Peter Simon
Santiago Cabrera … Paolo Sarmiento
Catherine Tate … Talullah Wentworth
Alek Keshishian
Comedy / Romance
An American intern at U.K. Vogue helps her friends find love.
The concept is quite good even it's not much different from other romantic comedy though, the story develops quickly, so it'll catch you.
One of my favourite actor, Matthew Rhys is in this film. His role is a gay man called Peter who lives with a girl from USA, performed by Brittany Murphy, and mainly the story goes with this girl, Jacks. There are some gay stories with Peter but there aren't much actual scenes, it’s like an imaginary world, there are only a few scenes with shirtless Matthew Rhys who is in bed with a guy.
But as a romantic comedy, it's fun to watch.
I’ve never seen the actress who played main character Jacks before, but she is cute. I know Santiago Cabrera from Heroes and I like him. He looks very natural and pure. I actually don’t know other acting about him, I’d like to find other films or TV shows. On the 20th of December, 2009 Brittany Murphy passed away. R.I.P.
