Produced for HBO, the Capraesque romantic comedy The Girl in the Café stars Bill Nighy as Lawrence, a mild and unprepossessing British civil servant assigned to his country's delegation at the G8 Summit in Reykjavik, Iceland. Although he'd resigned himself to a life of lonely bachelorhood, Lawrence finds himself drawn to Gina (Kelly Macdonald), a odd, outspoken young woman whom he has met in a café. On a whim, the shy Lawrence invites the decidedly unshy Gina to accompany him to Reykjavik. The burgeoning relationship between these two seemingly mismatched souls is counterpointed by the political jockeying at the conference, where the avowed purpose of G8--to adopt the all-important Millenium Development Goals as a means of reducing world poverty--is obscured by egomania, xenophobia and footdragging. Ultimately, the time comes when both Lawrence and Gina must make crucial decisions, with not only their own future but also the future of mankind in the balance. Written by Richard Curtis of Four Weddings and a Funeral fame, The Girl in the Café first aired on June 25, 2005. -- Hal Erickson (allmovie.com)
