Through a misunderstanding, Sarah ends up drunk at Kevin’s apartment and decides, like Goldilocks, to take a nap there, assuming he’s away on tour.
Instead she finds him on the couch, mournfully pecking at a laptop in his underwear and he comes onto her, reminding her of how great they were together.
The story centers on Brie and Caplan, who play two very different sisters, one who’s engaged and one who’s deeply afraid of commitment.
The movie drops on VOD November 8th and opens in select theaters nationwide December 14th, so save those dates.
IMAGE COURTESY OF IFC FILMSLizzy Caplan has had the kind of career in comedy most simply—and aptly—described as smart. What I thought was interesting about them, though they are drastically different, both of them end up being about what’s right for the individual, which, most of the time, is to buck convention. It’s figuring out how to do it on your own terms, which is really difficult, because everyone I know who has gotten married become seemingly all about your family and everyone’s making compromises… I find that break-ups are so much easier when you can hate the person.
I’m actually all bundled up in my house and it’s so funny and . It’s hard not to see , like the writers and the director, they’re all happily married and not anti-marriage at all, so that was kind of interesting to me. My main thing with the movie was it explores a break-up between people who, it’s not like one of them cheated or did something terrible.
In that awkward few seconds, you can see from the look on Caplan’s face that Sarah has always been the girl who doesn’t want to hurt anyone’s feelings and so tends to get pulled along to places she doesn’t want to be.
Plenty of us have caved at this moment, and Sarah, the one who feels guilty about not having her act together professionally, seems likely to.
Save the Date, a slim but likeable little romantic comedy that feels like a sweeter cousin of HBO’s Girls, opens in very limited release this week.
The timing positions Save the Date not so much an underdog as an underkitten, mewing around the ankles of The Hobbit and destined to be kicked aside by the likes of Barbra Streisand and Seth Rogen and their Guilt Trip even before the stampede for Les Miserables.
