AMY Adams stars in quirky Irish love story, LEAP YEAR (PG) as a young woman who has an elaborate scheme to propose to her boyfriend on February 29.

However, she faces a major setback when bad weather threatens to derail her planned trip to Dublin.

With the help of an innkeeper, however, her cross-country odyssey just might result in her getting engaged.

Screenwriters Deborah Kaplan and Harry Elfont have been working on comedies together for a decade.

Kaplan says: "I was on a news website, and it was actually February 29th. There was a headline that read Women in Ireland Propose on Leap Year Day, and I said to Harry, 'Does this sound like a movie or what?'

"We dropped what we were working on, and within two weeks we had the outline of the story."
