Joss Whedon has taken a detour from his usual fantasy stories, and has created a pure love story. Zoe Kazan and Michael Stahl-David performed flawlessly, and held onto the audience’s attention from beginning to end. This is something that is near impossible to do, at least when it comes to my attention span. The cinematography, and acting of course, was so well done it almost made you forget the two actors were performing in different locations. The writing was beautiful, and the actors made it believable. If you’re looking for a film that will entertain you, you like movies that break from the norm, and you like romance, this is the film for you. Five stars for me.
This film was first shown at the Tribeca Film Festival, and was released for rent online at – In Your Eyes.
