After both finding success on TV, Party Down‘s Lizzy Caplan and Community‘s Alison Brie have teamed up as sisters for a new dramedy. Premiering at Sundance, Michael Mohan‘s Save the Date is now headed to theaters and VOD this fall and the first trailer has arrived.
Although we found the film to be repetitive and obvious in our Sundance review, this look makes it seem like a fairly enjoyable and innocuous time. Being a fan of the two leading ladies, I look forward to checking it out later this year. See it out below for the film also starring Martin Starr, Geoffrey Arend and Mark Webber.
After an ill-timed and very public marriage proposal, fiercely independent Sarah (Caplan) breaks up with her overeager boyfriend Kevin (Arend). Sarah turns to her sister Beth (Brie) for support, but Beth is too busy obsessing over the details of her own wedding to Kevin’s band mate, Andrew (Starr). When Sarah suddenly finds herself caught up in an intense rebound romance with the adorable Jonathan (Webber), she is forced to examine her own fears of commitment and vulnerability. With honesty, heart, and humor, all five struggle with the trials, happiness, and pain of modern love. In the end Sarah must decide – is it better to stay safely single or to risk it all on love?
Save the Date hits VOD on November 8th following a theatrical release on December 14th.
