A Globe & Mail 100
The feel-good hit of 2013, The Rosie Project is
a classic screwball romance about a handsome but awkward genetics
professor and the woman who is totally wrong for him
A first-date dud, socially awkward and overly fond of quick-dry
clothes, genetics professor Don Tillman has given up on love, until
a chance encounter gives him an idea.
He will design a questionnaire-a sixteen-page, scientifically
researched questionnaire-to uncover the perfect partner. She will
most definitely not be a barmaid, a smoker, a drinker or a
late-arriver. Rosie is all these things. She is also fiery and
intelligent, strangely beguiling, and looking for her biological
father a search that a DNA expert might just be able to help her
The Rosie Project is a romantic comedy like no other.
It is arrestingly endearing and entirely unconventional, and it
will make you want to drink cocktails.
