PG
Leap Year is a 2010 romantic comedy directed by Anand Tucker. When Anna (Amy Adams) finds out that her boyfriend, Jeremy (Adam Scott), will be in Dublin on February 29, she hatches a plan to take their four-year engagement to the next level. Inspired by an Irish tradition that allows women to propose to men on Leap Day, she boards a plane bound for Dublin. Her plans go awry when bad weather forces her plane to land in Cardiff, Wales. Undaunted, Anna charters a boat for Dublin, but the continuing storm forces her boat ashore on the Dingle Peninsula. Miles from her destination, Anna meets handsome innkeeper Declan O'Callaghan (Matthew Goode) and hires him to drive her to Dublin. The trip starts off poorly. Anna's demanding attitude and excessive baggage instantly get on Declan's nerves. Things go from bad to worse when Anna leans against the car to clean cow manure off her shoes and sends it into a lake. The two part company, but soon reconcile and continue on their way to Dublin. Once they arrive in Dublin and Anna meets up with her boyfriend, Jeremy, she can't stop thinking about Declan. Confused, Anna must decide if the life she longed for is the one she truly wants.moreless
