[A] droll, knowing and tender romance - a story that brings a delicate touch to one of the thorniest of life's questions: How do you predict regret?

An appealing cast of players, crisp urban cinematography and a relatable streak of millennial malaise is unique enough to be engaging.

February 16, 2018 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
