(a film review by Mark R. Leeper)

In BOOK OF LOVE, Henry (played by actor Sam Clafin), has all of Hugh Grant's mannerisms and Maria (played by lead actress Veronica Echegui) looks like Penelope Cruz. In fact, this film seems assembled from pieces of other films. Henry is the author of a very chaste book about love, and Maria is the Mexican translator who turns it into a steamy bestseller. They meet when he goes on a book tour in Mexico, and take an instant dislike to each other. The film proceeds just as you would expect.

Released 02/04/22; available on Amazon Prime. Rating: low +2 (-4 to +4), or 7/10.
