Wild Target (British 2010)
Director: Jonathan Lynn
With: Bill Nighy, Emily Blunt, Rupert Grint, Rupert Everett, Eileen Atkins, Martin Freeman
Slight, very silly, and very endearing. One in the “human side of paid assassins” genre, plus the small, character-driven English film.
Maynard (Nighy) is a middle-aged hit man hired to kill a young woman, Rose (Blunt). Completely against his instincts, and his code as an assassin, Maynard not only spares her, he falls in love with her. Who wouldn’t?
