Jennifer (Jessica Lancaster) is an American in Cork, Ireland, living in a so-so relationship with Marc (Stephen Wyley), a shrewd real estate developer, and she stays with him mainly because he provides security, has promised to take care of her mentally unstable brother Matty (Jeremiah Ocanas) once he's released from the clinic - oh, and because all sorts of signs have pointed to him being the right one for her, as she believes in the power of the universe guiding her. Eamon (Owen Dara) is a nurse in the clinic Matty's at, and over time he has developed a strong relationship with Matty. And when he meets Jennifer, he's immediately charmed by her - and she likes him too, lets him take her out, invite her to his appartment and whatnot ... but nothing actually happens between them, but all the same she refuses to tell him about Marc for the longest time. And when she does, it breaks his heart. Thing is, by now she already has realized she feels drawn much more to Eamon than to Marc - and however much she tries to neglect it, she eventually ends up in bed with him. But after she returns home after their sexual encounter, Marc asks her to marry him - and all the signs the universe seem to give her point to "yes" - leaving Eamon heartbroken again. Meanwhile, Marc even agrees to let Matty move in with them after he's released from the clinic, and it seems everything's falling in Jennifer's favour ... until Matty runs away, and Jennifer finds out she's pregnant - but not from Marc ...

 

Choosing Signs is basically a charming little film that sheds an unusual light on the romance genre, one that's good at blending drama with comedy, sarcasm with deep feelings in a very non-assuming way. And a very subtle directorial effort only helps to bring the point across. And add to that some very likeable or at least relateable characters embodied by a competent cast, and you've got yourself a pretty good movie.
