A while back I was asked to preview a movie before it was released for the first time on February 13th in Germany. It’s a debut feature from Myopia Pictures, which is a production company based in NY and headed by the film’s writer and director, Christopher Tedrick. It’s a Rom-Com with a little something extra thrown in. I don’t want to give anything important away here, but will hopefully get your interest. This is a film I definitely recommend—especially to anyone out there looking for “the one.”
I LOVED this film. My attention never wavered and it was anything but predictable. It’s about a young woman who is longing for that special someone, but who seems to have a history of always finding fault with the men who are into her. She is romantic yet cynical, intelligent, yet thinks primarily with her heart and gut. She longs for a soulmate, but finds it hard to connect when a great guy is right in front of her.
This film speaks to how technology or virtual connecting can take on a life of its own. Believing that we know someone based on what they write about themselves leaves a lot out—and this film deals with this in a unique and touching way. It delves into the feelings of its primary character and introduces us to her cool friend and confident, and to a great guy she meets through ironic coincidence. We watch a romance blossom as we wonder about her search for an elusive journal writer who speaks to her feelings in a way that draws her in and keeps her engaged in her quest to find him, even at the potential expense of her budding love affair.
We are kept on edge as to whether she will ever find the writer, what will happen to her real life relationship—and if she will ever feel satisfied that a real and less than perfect guy could be her perfect guy. The ending has a few good twists and we are not left wanting. Enjoy…
