Tamara Drewe (Gemma Arterton), returns to the Dorset village of Ewedown to sell her late mother’s house. Once she was an the ugly duckling; now, after a nose job, she is a glamorous journalist.
She is engaged but she is soon being pursued by Nicholas, a pretentious author and serial philanderer, and she also awakens feelings in Andy, an odd job man and old flame.
The movie publicity made a lot of fuss about Gemma’s prosthetic nose but it was actually only seen in one scene – and then in the background. The final nose used in the movie was bigger and more hooked than than in the initial makeup tests.
Daniel Phillips was the make-up & hair designer; Tapio Salmi was the make-up & hair supervisor; Kristyan Mallett was responsible for the prosthetics.
