Storyline

Celeste and Jesse have been best friends forever. They dated in high school, got married, and now they're getting divorced. Their best friends don't think they can maintain their friendship throughout the dissolution of their marriage, but Celeste and Jesse don't think there will be a problem. But that's before Jesse gets into a relationship that Celeste doesn't think he can handle, and Celeste finds it harder to move on than she originally thought. Written by napierslogs

Great movie
21 August 2012 | by See all my reviews

I thoroughly enjoyed this movie. I highly recommend it.

It is a small movie, but it is not an art-house film. This is a universal story, well told and shot like a Hollywood film. Meaning no shaky iPhone aesthetic or bad sound. It is the rare case of best of both worlds.

It is funny, believable, unique and very current / of our time. I am not surprised it was an audience favorite at Sundance. Even the audience on a Monday night at Arclight Hollywood clapped...

The cast is great and Rashida Jones proves that she can carry a movie. This movie is much better than recent indie favorites like "jeff, Who lives at home" by the Duplat Brothers for example. I hope to see more of everybody involved in this.

I may go and see it again.
