It's follows the progression of a relationship between the isolated only over achieving daughter of a secretly failed publisher and ferocious recluse controversial writer of the seminal book of her father's publishing house. Their unlikely bonding over the course of an impossible for both book tour. Wonderful music, eloquent dialogue, clever devices, beautiful art direction. Un-invasive personal artful camera. It has a sane heart. Wonderful cast. I love Lucy and Rachel's banter. The evil Jack's ploys. The contributions of the excellent cat. I've watched it several times. If it's Michael Caine's final film, he chose well.
