The Decoy Bride
The Happy Couple: Lara (Alice Eve) and James (David Tennant)
The Hanger On: Katie (Kelly Macdonald)
What’s the situation? Lara’s a huge star and determined to marry her fiancé, blocked writer James, away from the glare of the paparazzi. They escape to the remote Scottish island on which James’ novel was set (although he made it all up), only to discover that the locals are willing to sell them out. Lara runs away and local girl Katie steps in as a decoy bride to cover her tracks, only to accidentally get married to James. It’s Local Hero meets The Wedding Planner! And you probably missed it in cinemas because it was barely there.
Worst moment: Is it really that easy to marry someone by accident?
Moral of the story? Honestly, Lara, if Daniel Craig and Rachel Weisz can manage a secret wedding, so can you.
