The Ones Below 2015

     Theresa and Jon have moved into the apartment downstairs from Kate and Justin in a small London suburb.  Both Theresa and Kate are expecting babies.  They start to swim together and afterwards Theresa meets Justin for lunch.  Theresa and Jon are wealthy and Jon doesn’t need to be at work every day but Justin does.  To welcome them to the neighborhood, Kate and Justin invite the new couple for dinner.
     Theresa and Jon are opposite in personalities.  She’s easy to get along with but Jon is rather terse and he likes everything a certain way.  Justin is a hard worker and Kate stays at home.  They seem a better match as a couple.  Everything seems to be going well for a time.  I had an idea how this film was going to turn out and I was right.  Later it seems Kate and Justin didn’t figure things out as easily?  3 ½* (I liked this movie)

87 min, Drama directed by David Farr with Clemence Poesy, David Morrissey, Stephen Campbell Moore, Laura Birn, Deborah Findlay, Sarah Malin, Anna Madeley, Jonathan Harden, Sam Pamphilon, Franc Ashman.
