“A rom-com that succeeds in revitalizing that discredited genre where so many others have failed, injecting it with the grit and emotion of realist drama rather than with amped-up whimsy or social satire.”~Salon

Aroview: An institutionalized man attempts to readjust to life and love in this full-bodied comedy-drama that pairs two of the hottest stars of the moment with a script that puts them through hard-earned romantic paces.

Harking back to the genre that the director first flirted with in FLIRTING WITH DISASTER, this is again more sophisticated than the average rom-com, tossing its messy elements into an elegant swirl that at once transcends the formula while conforming to big-hearted Hollywood conventions. A breakout hit at the box-office, this also delivered Jennifer Lawrence an Oscar for Best Actress.
