Save the Date is a little romantic dramedy that was at Sundance in 2012. The film stars Lizzy Caplan, Alison Brie, Martin Starr, Geoffrey Arend, Mark Webber, Timothy Busfield, and Melonie Diaz. Michael directed the film and Jeffrey Brown, Michael Mohan, and Egan Reich wrote the screenplay. It kind of speaks truthfully about the situations, and I appreciate that. Have you ever been in a relationship where your more into the other person or vice versa?
“After an ill-timed and very public marriage proposal, fiercely independent Sarah (Lizzy Caplan) breaks up with her overeager boyfriend Kevin (Geoffrey Arend). Sarah turns to her sister Beth (Alison Brie) for support, but Beth is too busy obsessing over the details of her own wedding to Kevin’s band mate, Andrew (Martin Starr). When Sarah suddenly finds herself caught up in an intense rebound romance with the adorable Jonathan (Mark 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? Filmmaker Michael Mohan (ONE TOO MANY MORNINGS) returns with a bittersweet screenplay he wrote with famed graphic novelist Jeffrey Brown and co-writer Egan Reich. At turns funny, sad, and sweet, SAVE THE DATE is a sincere story about the familial and romantic bonds that form us all.”
Save the Date is in theatres December 14, 2012 and is available on VOD right now.
