About the Movie
Laurel (Kazan) has always been the odd wallflower, choosing to live at home with her father, while her glamorous identical twin, Audrey (Kazan), possesses the confidence and appeal to succeed in the big city. When tragedy strikes and Laurel is mistaken for her twin sister, she makes the impulsive decision to assume her sister’s identity and become The Pretty One. As she eases into her new, independent existence, Laurel discovers that she’s capable of accomplishments she had never before had dreamed of: excelling in a career, maintaining friendships and even finding love. Zoe Kazan (Ruby Sparks), Jake Johnson (TV’s “New Girl”) and Ron Livingston (Drinking Buddies) star in this quirky, comedic drama about family ties and second chances.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: You are urged to laugh and cry, but the best you are likely to manage is a polite, embarrassed smile.
Rotten: What would "The Pretty One" be without Zoe Kazan's pixieish melancholy and offbeat comic timing? Not much.
Fresh: Kazan holds together a decent coming-of-age script that's emotionally sincere if tonally unfocused.
Fresh: The film is trite on the surface, but through some complex plotting, writer-director Jenee LaMarque slyly incorporates foreboding themes of guilt and delusion that push the farcical elements to the brink.
No one is perfect
This movie provokes emotions of loss and love that everyone can relate to. As well as wishing to be someone that we aren’t. If you didn’t already cherish the relationships you have in your life, this movie will make you care for them even more.
What a lovely surprise
What a sweet charming movie. Zoe K gives a great performance, Shows a side of LA where a lot of young people live but no one shoots for film….a great evening rental --
Sweet & easy
This can get a little twee but it's a thoughtful, lowkey movie with some well-known indie players that can really act.
