We hate to name names, but if certain filmmakers *cough* Richard Curtis *cough* are to be believed, London life is a constant whirl of dinner parties, wedding invitations, spontaneous love affairs, the South Bank, niche yet artistically fulfilling careers, vaguely embarrassing sex, verdant gardens, the South Bank, lovely furniture, scruffy yet dependable friends, artisan markets, open-plan kitchens, the South Bank, playwrights, New Labour, the Sugababes, Oxford shirts, eccentric siblings, and the South Bank. Depending on your viewpoint, it’s either a bit of harmless fun or a worryingly flat portrayal of Europe’s most diverse city.
