The New Romantic (2018)
Critic Reviews for The New Romantic
Setting the bar for the film impossibly high with repetitious references to Nora Ephron classics like Sleepless in Seattle, Stone shows she's got spirit, but maybe not the best judgment, much like her protagonist.
More tragic than funny, but Stone is hoping for laughs - or really, swoons - or maybe just whatever will make audiences happy, an eagerness to please that makes the tone wobble from scene to scene.
In a sense, The New Romantic succumbs to the same nervous uncertainty that gnaws at its heroine, so anxious about how it compares to pre-existing stories that it misses a few golden opportunities to tell one of its own.
The New Romantic is the rare film presents these relationships without judgment offering up the good, bad, painful, and confusing as a matter of fact.
