It all centres around an up-coming [obviously, on-and-off] lesbian wedding...it's ensemble, it's low-budget...and, it's a little bit wordy!
Everything is told...nothing is shown, this could have been - quite easily - a radio play! And, perhaps, it would have worked better on the old wireless...watching these - most unlikable - characters is a chore too far.
The grossly irritating vlogger is punchable, the crappy-stand-up-comedian is [for want of a better word] crappy...as for the lesbian couple, one half high-maintenance, the other..bordering on the apathetic.
The conflicts [of which there are many] are all self-made and resolved quickly...it's all very dizzying how readily the 'forgivenesses' are dished out.
Look...this is a debut feature and it does creak under the weight of inexperience...obviously, the intention was...to produce a Richard Curtis-ish quirky little rom-com. Here's a little bit of advice: Start off by creating characters the audience will like, relate to, take into their hearts. Otherwise, like this bunch...no-one will care a jot what happens to them. And, as for lasting impressions...well, all forgotten, soon after.
British writer-director Matt Roberts' funny debut feature is an engaging, smart and wry take on the British rom-com, offering dark comic twists as it explores love and isolation in our technological age. A group of friends are at different stages in their relationships, and none of them are convinced about what they're doing: Emmy (Sarah Ovens) and Samantha (Eleanor Fanyinka) are due to get married; Josh (Owen Roberts) and Jenifer (Lizzy Watts) are breaking up; and Niall (Ciaran Dowd) is sleeping around. A low-budget film with a lot of heart.
