  • Conventionally starts as romantic genre
  • The audience doesn't know who the central protagonist is
  • Bill Nighy uses a significant amount of profanities, possibly to attract the male audience
  • There are a range of ethnicities, ages and genders at the airport however no one is portrayed as being homosexual
