Diana (Zosia Mamet, “Girls”) moves back to New York City after a few years in London for a fresh start — only to discover her ex-boyfriend lives in the apartment below. It’s not long before old wounds reopen, and she is forced to confront the true nature of her feelings, in this touching dramedy about the fine line between friendship and love.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: Leaves its actors looking somewhat stranded, as if waiting for Neil Simon zingers that were never written. – Ben Kenigsberg, New York Times, Feb 15, 2018

Fresh: Mamet has a quick, spry reaction time and a gently forlorn focus that holds the screen, and she holds this movie together. – Owen Gleiberman, Variety, May 3, 2017

Fresh: [A] droll, knowing and tender romance - a story that brings a delicate touch to one of the thorniest of life's questions: How do you predict regret? – Sheri Linden, Los Angeles Times, Feb 22, 2018

Rotten: What's missing in Brooks's gentle approach is the rom-com fizz and pop, with comic zingers that wound and enlighten. – Serena Donadoni, Village Voice, Feb 14, 2018

This was the best that anyone could come up with for a movie idea?

Sweet indie movie filmed in NYC

I always thought Zosia Mamet deserved better than a Lena Dunham project, and this movie proves it. Sweet, funny, and very well filmed- especially if you enjoy NYC as the backdrop of a film. It's a soft, thoughtful movie about people finding their way through the uncertainties of life, I chose to buy it rather than rent it, and now that I watched it I'm glad I did.

Really enjoyed it!

Really enjoyed it. Might not be for everyone, but the acting was great and it will be very familiar for many people. Give this film a chance!
