After almost hooking up at a wedding, strangers Jane and Will decide to share their eclectic dating history. This authentic rom-com possesses an unexpected nuance that locks you in from the opening scene. Writers Steve Almond, Julianna Baggott, and Keith Bunin nail the complexity of relationships, highlighting the vastly awkward experiences that come with sex and people’s past. Cleverly immersive flashbacks offer us insight into Jane and Will’s current state of affairs, literally and figuratively.

Lucy Hale lives in her sardonic wit stemming from Catholic guilt and all that comes with that upbringing (speaking from personal experience). Nat Wolff is charming and funny. The two have fierce chemistry. Their effortless banter immediately draws you in. A momentary musical duet is simply delicious. In truth, the cumulative trauma from past relationships creates fully fleshed-out, relatable characters. No one will walk away without some personal connection to Jane and Will.

Nat Wolff and Lucy Hale in Which Brings Me To You

The score from Spencer David Hutchings has the quirky quaintness of rom-com classics like When Harry Met Sally. Additional soundtrack songs are iconic. Britne Oldford‘s cover of “It Had To Be You” is breathtaking. The breezy camerawork from Karina Silva adds to the accessibility of the story. WHICH BRINGS ME TO YOU leans into hope, and we can all use a bit of that these days. Director Peter Hutchings has a gem on his hands.

Review: ‘Then Came You’ rises above the rom-com tropes.

February 1, 2019

A hypochondriac working as an airport baggage handler is forced to confront his fears when a British teenager with a terminal illness enlists him to help her carry out her eccentric bucket list.

Then Came You manages to bypass the usual rom-com tropes and fleshes out a story about kids navigating a real emotional journey. Asa Butterfield has a naturally emo kid look about him but has the sincere chops to shine in every role that’s thrown his way. He appears genuinely grounded on screen and that makes him easy to watch. If you’re not crying at the end of this film you may have no soul. There is more than meets the eye Butterfield’s backstory which makes for an honest to goodness tug at the heartstrings in the end. The shining star of the film is undoubtedly Maisie Williams. Her comic timing and natural snark own you from the very first scene. I need her to be cast in all the things from here on out. Our two leads have a wonderful chemistry that builds organically. It reminds me of the dynamic of Anna Chlumsky and Macaulay Culkin in My Girl, which is clearly a compliment. Then Came You is simply a lovely film that can be enjoyed by a wide audience.

Asa Butterfield (The Space Between Us,The House of Tomorrow), Maisie Williams(Game of Thrones), Nina Dobrev (The Vampire Diaries), Tyler Hoechlin (Fifty Shades Freed), David Koechner (The Goldbergs), Peyton List (The Outcasts), Tituss Burgess(Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt), Sonya Walger (Lost), Margot Bingham (Boardwalk Empire) and Ken Jeong (Crazy Rich Asians)
