dating a friend of your ex boyfriend - Who michael angarano dating

The film's first scene, which features the two of them meeting outside a high-school party they both hate, is exactly that.

(The two actually have been dating since shooting the movie.) On its surface, is a teenage coming-of-age, losing-your-virginity sex comedy, but in actuality, it's an arrestingly cute, realistic look at young love. The Four-Faced Liar (2010)There is a lot going on here concerning the nature of monogamy, friendships, gender, and sexuality, and it's all done pretty effortlessly. The Giant Mechanical Man (2012)Chris Messina's back! They both play losers in Chicago who bond over a mutual misery. ): He's a street artist who dresses like a giant mechanical man (not classic rom-com! It's great for fans of Messina's dancing ability and Fischer's ability to be hilariously sullen. The One I Love (2014)I don't want to spoil too much of the premise because the film is all about a central mystery.

Ironically, she seems more alive in this role than any she's yet played. Me and You and Everyone We Know (2005)In the brain of Miranda July (who writes, directs, and stars in the movie), this is what a romantic comedy looks like.

Per annual usual we're off the week between Christmas New Years, taking the time to recuperate what little remains of out addled brains (which in this year's instance translates to "going to see Call Me By Your Name every day at least once").

I hope everyone gets all their Jollies off, and I'll see you back here on January 2nd.

Liberal Arts is a romantic comedy about growing up, those unwilling to do so, and those trying to do so too quickly. Life After Beth (2014)There have been several great indie romantic-comedies this year. Case in point: Life After Beth, a quirky rom-com about young love in which one of the parties is a zombie.

It stars Dane De Haan and Aubrey Plaza, the latter of which is particularly dynamic as the zombie.

Ceremony (2011)Ceremony is what it would look like if Wes Anderson made Wedding Crashers.

Written and directed by Max Winkler (Henry's son), it tells the story of a young children's-book author (Michael Angarano) who crashes the wedding weekend of an older woman (Uma Thurman) he's had an intimate letter-writing relationship with.

Their dynamic is not unlike the rom-com trope of one person starting off hating the other, but here, it is a lot more intense and uncomfortable due to her deep-seated issues.

Underneath all of this is a cute movie about some fucked-up people. Greenberg (2010)Noah Baumbach's Greenberg is right in my wheelhouse, as I'm a sucker for any movie in which a comedian is sad.

Written and directed by Gillian Robespierre, it represents the best of what the indie rom-com can offer: beats and characters that feel similar to the genre, but with a specificity and complexity that would never fly in a major studio release. Safety Not Guaranteed (2012)There is a lot going on in Safety Not Guaranteed, but it's all built on a pretty rom-com-y arc between Aubrey Plaza and Mark Duplass.
