About the Movie
A long-term relationship threatens to implode over the course of one tumultuous night. After six years together, thirty-something couple Henry (Ben Feldman) and Dianne (Olivia Thirlby) find themselves caught between their fears of commitment and societal pressure to settle down and marry. An impulsive decision and a surprise revelation send each into an emotional tailspin. Heading out into the LA night, both Henry and Dianne encounter strangers—he a free-spirited rocker (Adam Goldberg), she a charming artist (Analeigh Tipton)—who offer the possibility of new romantic thrills. The choices each makes will determine what—if anything—will be left of their relationship come morning. By turns brutally honest and incisively funny, Between Us is a raw, real, and all-too-relatable look at the rocky terrain of 21st century romance.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Stingingly attuned to the tension between long-term love and last-minute misgivings, "Between Us" makes a familiar situation feel remarkably fresh.
Rotten: Illingworth aims to capture a vital relationship at a crucial turning point, but Between Us fails because Dianne is half-formed.
Rotten: For Between Us to be special, Illingsworth and his leads would have to animate the familiar with the particular, but Dianne and Henry hew too closely to type.
Fresh: Feldman, who played Ginsberg on Mad Men, and Thirlby, who's probably still best known as the best friend in Juno, lend shading to characters whose personal and professional lives seem stuck at the first-draft stage.
A wonderful and sincere look at a couple holding on to their own concept of what a relationship is and should be..
Between Us takes a real, honest look at commitment in relationship, recognizing that love is more than emotions and novelty. It's creative and genuine approach keep the viewer interested and engaged, inciting thoughtful introspection of ones own relationship. A well made, well directed and well acted movie.
