As a sympathetic look at two likeable lovers who don't know what's good for them, it's enough to give us a rooting interest - even if we're rooting for the two protagonists to accept the consequences of their mistakes and move on.
It's grating in its alternate simplicity and pretensions, and the big fights between the two leads ring completely false.
Newness is too dull to make you peer over the edge, and too weak to push you off of it.
"Newness" explores the lures - and pitfalls - of an open relationship in the new culture of the digital meat market, but really, it's bringing some very old news.
"Newness" skillfully portrays modern courtship in all its buzzy, fleeting electricity, which helps mitigate the fact that filmmaker Drake Doremus is merely adding a fresh coat of paint to an old romantic dilemma.
Written by Ben York Jones, Newness offers an accurate portrayal of modern millennial dating habits, without quite commenting on the apps, the indecisiveness, the insatiability, and hookup culture as a whole.
Newness is a modern love story, where selfies and LTE play a role, but its sweet, wildly optimistic final minutes are something else entirely.
The central theme of "Newness" isn't as profound or even as novel as either the filmmakers or their millennial target audience may believe. But at it's best, "Newness" is about how nothing's really all that new.
Newness is Like Crazy for open relationships.
Newness will occasionally remind one of the raw talent Doremus has, but a screenplay like this one leaves him narratively stagnant.
Drake Doremus returns to Sundance with a heart wrenching dissection of love in the internet age.
The most sexually charged film he's made yet, Doremus shoots it with energy to match, delivering intimacy while suggesting voyeurism.
