Three young men, all cursed with two left feet, pursue three beautiful women. A mystical cupid-like cab driver, Jimmy, aids the course of true love with words of wisdom for Eddie; lost clues for Fergus and Salsa lessons for Frankie as they embark on a series of adventures against a background of Salsa, Latin and Easy-listening tunes.
David Kane's follow-up to his sleeper hit This Year's Love owes its existence to actress Jennifer Ehle. During the making of that film, she dragged Kane along to a salsa class and, to the jiving sounds of Celia Cruz, the late Tito Puente and their Cuban and Colombian companeros, Kane came up with Born Romantic.
Produced by Michele Camarda, who worked with Kane on both films, the film revolves around the romantic adventures of six young salsa enthusiasts - including David Morrissey as a musician, Jimi Mistry as an incompetent thief, Olivia Williams as an art restorer and Jane Horrocks as a record shop assistant - who are guided by a cab driver-cum-cupid (Adrian Lester).
