Not another happy ending film official trailer
Not Another Happy Ending is a 2013 British romantic comedy film directed by John McKay, starring Karen Gillan, Stanley Weber and Freya Mavor. Produced by Claire Mundell and Wendy Griffin, and written by David Solomons, the film premiered at the Edinburgh International Film Festival on 30 June 2013.
It was largely shot in Glasgow's Merchant City.
Tom Duvall, the editor of a struggling publishing company, discovers that his only successful author, Jane Lockhart, cannot write when happy. Due to her recent success, she is left unable to write and he is stuck. He is forced to make her incredibly unhappy. The thing is, the worse he makes her feel, the more he realizes he's in love with her.
The film was financed in part by a crowdfunding campaign on the website Indiegogo, which raised USD$22,660. Additional funding came through the efforts of producer Claire Mundell, who "[patch-worked] a bunch of different sources of funding together, none of whom interfered in any kind of way with the way the film turned out".
Scottish actor Emun Elliott was originally attached to play the role of Tom, but was replaced with French actor Stanley Weber. This led the filmmakers to write into the script the character's French background, as well as "a lot of explanation about how this French guy could end up in Glasgow and be a publisher".
Rotten Tomatoes gives the film a rating of 33% from 15 critics.
