When yet another anniversary passes without a marriage proposal from her boyfriend, Anna decides to take action. Aware of a Celtic tradition that allows women to pop the question on Feb. 29, she plans to follow her lover to Dublin and ask him to marry her. Fate has other plans, however, and Anna winds up on the other side of the Emerald Isle with handsome, but surly, Declan -- an Irishman who may just lead Anna down the road to true love.

Leap Year movie full length review - The 60 seconds answer

After four years wait for Jeremys proposal (earrings instead 'the' ring) Anna from Boston, her profession, 'staging apartments', she 'stages' her proposal: as her grandmother did: with the Irish leap year tradition.

And convenient it is: Jeremey is called to Dublin. Now or never. A storm forces the plane from Boston to land at Cardiff. And here is no ferry to Cork. And the hired tugboat leaves her at Dingle. What is here? Declans local hotel and his taxi. The journey with the rude Declan to Dublin is predictable. Has to be. Must. In our time have few time. Departure and arrival 'deletes' the between, the journey. What happens? And how and why? Declan tells himself: "Don't listen to her. She knows not what she says." The only thing for her is: coming in time to Dublin. Nothing changes her mind: storm, cows, the taxi, rowdies, missed train, kissing as pretending wife the pretending husband and sharing (with her future husband) the bed. But: "Do you know what? All your beastliness is like? It's an act. It's a great, big, massive cover-up. And you growl and you snap, but you are in pain. And you've got a, You've got a big thorn in you beastly paw. Like a lion. A lovely, lovely lion." The 'thorn' is his former fiancé Kaleigh who deceived him with his friend. Waiting for the train, they climb the hill to the ruins of Ballycarbery: "It's one of the ten wonders of Irland", says Declan. And riddles her: "If your apartment's on fire ... and you had 60 seconds, what would you take. ... Would it be the Chihuahua on the duvet. ... You've got 60 seconds. What are you going to grab?" And: "I know exactly what I'd 'grab'". Anna: Oh, yeah? What?" "Not telling you." She: "You can dish it, but can't take it, can you?" Answered later in Boston by Jeremy at their engagement party. His answer is Annas last piece of the Jeremy puzzle she looked at but never saw. And Jeremy never deceived her. Just a modern guy. The marriage is the entrance to their flat: "Married, you're in. Unmarried, you're out". What does Jeremy with 'his' 60 seconds? And Anna starts the fire alarm: "Do you have everything you need. Can you just look around for valuables? For laptops, cameras, whatever." Anna from Boston makes once more the 300 miles to Dingle and wants to know what Declan makes with his 60 seconds: "When my 60 seconds came around I realized I had everything I ever wanted. But nothing I really needed. And I think what I need is here. and I came all this way to see if you maybe think so too. If you do, well. I don't really have plans past that, which is new for me. So, Declan O'Callhan and I should probably learn your middle name, here is my proposal; I propose we not make plans, I propose we give this thing a chance and let it work out how it works out. so what do you say, do you wanna not make plans with me?" Also the wounded lion Declan learned during the journey his lesson and called in Dublin Kaleigh. Is somewhere between Dingle and Dublin the point of no return for Declan and Anna from Boston? It is the journey. For better (that they meet) and for worse (the black cat crosses 'their' road, making the journey difficult). She accepts Declans: "Why don't you stop trying to control everything in the known universe. It's dinner. Have a little faith that it will all work out." The same for him: to understand that sometimes it's 'not' only dinner. The movie must be predictable. What happens between the beginning and the end? Before the arrival. To see the obvious for granted hides the details we often do not see.
