About A Boy in Maida Vale
Will failed in love here in classic comedy About A Boy
Location: 215 Sutherland Avenue, Maida Vale, W9
Description: 'About a Boy' is a 2002 comedy-drama film directed by brothers Chris Weitz and Paul Weitz, based on the novel of the same name by Nick Hornby.
It stars Hugh Grant as Will Freeman, a cynical, immature young man who is taught how to act like a grown-up by a little boy (Nicholas Hoult as Marcus).
Based on Nick Hornby's best-selling novel, this classic British comedy was filmed all over the capital, including this very location - 'Otto Dining Lounge'.
In fact it is here in the movie that Hugh Grant, sorry Will, manages to split up with a series of increasingly enraged women!
