Wouldn’t this be a great world if insecurity and desperation made us more attractive?
23 July 2019

TV news journalists William Hurt and Albert Brooks both fight for the attention of Holly Hunter, a producer on the team.

Perhaps one of the most realistic love triangles you’ll get in a rom com. It’s a delicate, nuanced dynamic that tosses and turns without ever hinting at where it’s going.

This is brilliantly set alongside a compelling newsroom drama. The protagonists face personal and professional dilemmas that rely on each other, and mirror each other. It’s a multi-faceted screenplay yet nothing is superfluous.

Great writing and great acting combine to make one of the better romantic comedies to come out of Hollywood.
