Story: Me, Myself and Di starts as Janet (Clayton) is celebrating her 30th birthday where the community love her kind fun loving nature, but she hasn’t found herself finding love yet.

Thoughts on Me, Myself and Di
Thoughts – Me, Myself and Di is a romantic comedy about finding yourself no matter what your age, showing us how needing to break out of a cycle. This will show the importance of friendship, both within how you treat each other and understanding how certain people in your life might feel about you. Janet is one of the most likable characters you will see on screen, with her pure positive happy-go-lucky personality, despite holding back her own loneliness. Katy Clayton makes this character come off perfectly through this film. When it comes to the rest of the character Diana fills the uncertain best friend who is used to being the centre of attention, given her own situation to try and understand, which will help understand why she is acting certain ways in the film. The caravan holiday location plays into what we would know in the UK, with the affordable holidays at home. This is a movie that will leave you smiling, with how it all goes, knowing things can go from good to bad at a click of a fingers and back again.
Final Thoughts – Me, Myself and Di is an enjoyable comedy that is truly British in storytelling.
