New Yorker Harvey Shine (Academy-Award®-winner Dustin Hoffman) is on the verge of losing his dead-end job as a jingle writer. Warned by his boss (Richard Schiff) that he has just one more chance to deliver, Harvey goes to London for a weekend wedding for his daughter but promises to be back on Monday. When he misses the plane and is fired on the spot, Harvey strikes up a conversation with Kate (Academy-Award®-winner Emma Thompson), a slightly prickly, 40-something employee of the Office of National Statistics. Thus, through the devastation of Harvey's life, a new romance is born.
