The film had its world premiere last month at the Tribeca Film Festival. Adam Brody and Gabourey Sidibe also star in “Life Partners,” directed by Susanna Fogel from a script she co-wrote with Joni Lefkowitz.
Meester and Jacobs portray co-dependent best friends whose relationship shifts when Jacobs’ character starts a romance with a man, leaving her lesbian friend in a panic about her impending 30th birthday.
Ronnie Schieb gave the film a strong review for Variety at Tribeca, calling it a “well-scripted, intriguingly acted effort to mine the theme of prolonged adolescent best-buddyism through two women — one straight, the other gay.”
