Life Less Ordinary, A (1997)

O’Reilly (Holly Hunter) and Jackson (Delroy Lindo) are angels on assignment to make a love connection between Robert (Ewan McGregor), a scruffy, unemployed janitor, and Celine (Cameron Diaz), the spoiled smartass daughter of the corporate bigwig (Ian Holm) who fired Robert.

When janitor kidnaps heiress, it’s the perfect chance for the angels to hold them hostages for love.

A Life Less Ordinary was the work of director Danny Boyle, writer John Hodge and producer Andrew Macdonald, the bad-boy trio behind those Scottish shockers Shallow Grave (1995) and Trainspotting (1996).
