Patsy Kensit is a standout as Katie, bringing an enormous amount of charisma, warmth, and humor to her role, and supported by an elegant script. Director Don Boyd, best known as the producer of Aria, blends the performances, story and the integral cinematic device of Katie's direct camera narration with exceptional dexterity. Thus he never misses an opportunity to communicate Katie's feelings through pure technique. Katie views the future with optimistic uncertainty, convinced she can win over the world. With its warmth and wit, Twenty-One is prepared to accomplish the same goal.
