Plus One

I had been putting off watching this film for a few weeks now.  The “platonic friends navigate the wedding season” genre has been beaten to death in so many mediocre rom coms.  I decided to give it a chance based on some of the reviews – this was a good decision.

The film was in fact very different from so many others.  I won’t go too far into the details as it might give some of it away (is that possible?).  I recently watched and enjoyed Always Be My Maybe – I dare say that this was better.   The two leads were excellent and perfectly cast the film seemed to find out a unique niche in the genre.  I was invested from beginning to end and it is definitely one of the better films that I’ve seen this year.
