Sweet and touching search for love

22-year old Georgina (Lynn Redgrave) is perky and funny and undeniably frumpy. She wishes she were more like her pretty (but self-centered) roommate (Charlotte Rampling) who's always being invited to parties and has a handsome boyfriend (Alan Bates). The only man who seems to want Georgy is her father's boss (James Mason), a rich and married older man who has ogled her for years.

This is a sweet comedy/romance that lacks a real Prince Charming but does have a strong woman with a huge capacity to love. Georgy ends up with someone to devote her life to, though whether it is a happy ending is left to the viewer. The spirited theme song by the Seekers was a big hit when the movie came out in 1966; it reflects Lomdon's  happy-go-lucky mod attitude. Redgrave is endearing as Georgy, Rampling is suitably shrewish, Bates is a cute cad, and Mason makes for an off-putting but convenient lecher.

The movie is engaging, funny, and touching. Recommended.
