We were 22 years old, single, and well-versed in the rules of rom-com: We bought popcorn and in the silent seconds before the movie began, stopped our loud chewing and held the buttery kernels in our mouths so as to not attract attention. We looked at each other and laughed sheepishly. We kept laughing throughout Love Actually, which had its highlights, most notably a scene-stealing turn by a lowbrow brilliant Bill Nighy.
Joe Swanberg Joe Swanbergbless his unfailing tenacity, appears to get behind the camera and hope everything works out for the best. This is especially true when it does work out for the best, as it does in Win it All.
The story hangs off of him, off of his work, his emoting, the physical quality to his self-presentation before a lens. It means a lot that Swanberg and Johnson both care on a profoundly human level for Eddie. You probably have an Eddie figure in your life, whether you know it or not: The people in his life care about him, his creators care about him, and so of course we care about him, too, even at his worst, even as he invites troubles and hazards into his life against all fair warnings given him by his support system.
Juliette Binoche plays a single mother opening up a chocolate shop in a tiny French village.

Patel Part home movie, and part romantic comedy, Meet the Patels is a documentary crafted by brother-sister team Ravi V. Patel and Geeta V. Ravi wants to find love, pronto, so he and his sister Geeta document his search, touching upon universal themes of family and cultural appropriation despite the specifically personal nature of their narrative.
During the India trip, and in meeting with his extended family, Ravi decides to do whatever it takes to find a wife.
Something revelatory happens during the course of Meet the Patels: We watch as a family learns to communicate, honestly, with each other. Think of it as a palate cleanser for Paulson after a year spent maneuvering productions of grander scope and ambition.
But scale and quality exist in two separate zip codes, and what Blue Jay lacks in import it makes up for with effervescence and melancholy. Blue Jay only clocks in at about an hour and twenty minutes less, counting the credits scrawlso it should breeze along by its very nature, but it feels like it only runs about half as long as that.
The more the film progresses, the brighter and more enthusiastic Duplass becomes, relishing every second he gets to be on screen with her. Their chemistry is palpable.

The film explores the day-to-day Pittsburgh of neighborhoods, of patchy, unruly yards, of dive bars, of wood-paneled basements in old brick houses teetering on strenuous hills.Just as the early feminist movement notoriously excluded lesbians and women of color, romantic comedies have projected a very specific image of who deserves to find love.
Of the hundreds of studio romantic comedies produced in past years, virtually all have centered around white, heterosexual couples—many of whom have sidekicks-of-color whose.
