Here is the plot description for “Looking for Eric”:

Eric, the postman, is slipping through his own fingers. His chaotic family, his wild stepsons and the cement mixer in the front garden don’t help, but it is Eric’s own secret that drives him to the brink. Can he face Lily: the woman he once loved 30 years ago? Despite outrageous efforts and misplaced goodwill from his football fan mates, Eric continues to sink.

In desperate times, it takes a spliff and a special friend from foreign parts to challenge a lost postman to make that journey into the most perilous territory of all: the past. As the Chinese and one Frenchman say: “He who is afraid to throw the dice will never throw a six.”

The trailer for “Looking for Eric” can be watched now below.

Is it ever too late to rekindle with a long lost love?

Better late than never...

it’s probably best that you do rekindle later, because you’ve learned more about yourself and can enter the relationship with better understanding.

Love is everlasting.

It Might Be!

I would have to think if you are married or in a committed relationship that rekindling a long lost love might not be the idea. Then again it might be a good chance to get out of a bad relationship as well.
