The New Romantic Reviews

  • Apr 11, 2020

    While some of you may be reading this in hopes that it's another film where girl falls in love with guy, you'd be sadly mistaken. This isn't your average every day love film. It features an edge that most films in this category tend to lack. It has something for everyone whether it be comedy, romance, and most of all that little bit of raunchyness that some may crave. Now while some may be totally put off all together by a girl finding what romance is all about in her own unique and struggling way, it has it's charms. The main actress of the film also known for her role in The End Of The F****** (Jessica Barden), portrays a columnist who writes about her experiences in romance. Although a rough start for her writing career and her column on the brink of death, she eventually learns to have amazing adventures which eventually takes her column to the "Talk of the town" or as a writer would say, interesting. What sets this film apart from the rest is it's unique approach and take on romance. This isn't your average love story. The crazy adventures will take you on a romantic ride wanting you to know more about what is really going on in her head. What will she do to find the truth to romance? Is this even about romance or to write a good story? At the end of the day, this films quirky charms and creative storyline with it's interesting take on romance leaves the audiences intrigued and invested. While this film doesn't pull at your heart strings, make you fall in love, or turn you into a hopeless romantic. Overall, you're probably wondering whether it's worth a watch or a skip. If I haven't convinced you that a movie which has a line that says "what are you talking about, I can't afford Uber Eats" and references romance in a way that probably most of us haven't experienced I would say Yes. I highly recommend this film for all the reasons mentioned above but also because sometime's one just needs an escape from the harsh reality of real romance. Grade: C+.

    The only thing that saves it was the decent acting from Brett Dier. Slow, not very interesting.

    With a lead dryer than California, The New Romantic manages to come out on top largely due to the strength of its supporting cast of characters.

    Great indie gem with a thoughtful perspective on Power dynamics in older male/younger female relationships.
