A homage to the rom-coms of the 1960s - especially the Doris Day/Rock Hudson vehicles. Small-town librarian, Barbara Novak (Renee Zellweger) arrives in New York City with big plans and decides to write a novel that embraces feminist views ahead of their time (remember this is set in the 1960s), encouraging independence and a healthy sex-life above a happy relationship and marriage. The novel, 'Down With Love', becomes an overnight success, and arouses the interest of long-term bachelor and lady-killer Catcher Block (Ewan McGregor). Block decides to put Novak to the test by going against character (playing the shy retiring male) to make her fall in love with him and thus expose her in the magazine he writes for. But he finds himself falling for Novak...
