British filmmakers can be a downright curmudgeonly lot — Stephen Frears is one example, with Mike Leigh trailing close behind — but the vast majority of actors from the U.K. tend to be utterly charming and down-to-earth.

Gemma Arterton and Dominic Cooper, for instance, are more than happy to climb onto a hotel bed with a reporter and photographer to conduct an interview about their latest film, Tamara Drewe. They don’t make a fuss when a string of phone calls interrupt the conversation, they ask as many questions as they answer and, on the whole, are entirely likable.

  M.   October 14, 2010

LONDON — Early in “Tamara Drewe,” the title character walks with insolent lusciousness down the road to meet her neighbors, gathered at a writers’ retreat in rural Dorset. Wearing an innocent expression and a near-pornographic ensemble consisting of a red tank top and a pair of cutoff shorts so brief they leave uncovered a healthy portion of her rear end, she sends a frisson of excitement — or irritation, depending — through the group.

That is just her opening gambit. Read More
