Storyline

Celeste and Jesse have been best friends forever. They dated in high school, got married, and now they're getting divorced. Their best friends don't think they can maintain their friendship throughout the dissolution of their marriage, but Celeste and Jesse don't think there will be a problem. But that's before Jesse gets into a relationship that Celeste doesn't think he can handle, and Celeste finds it harder to move on than she originally thought. Written by napierslogs

Watched at LA film fest
5 July 2012 | by See all my reviews

I saw this film at LA Film fest and loved it! Easily the best indie love story since 500 days of summer. Rashida Jones is heartwarming and really funny in the movie. Highly recommended! Plus its got a great score, in a summer full of remakes and superhero movies Celeste and Jesse stands out above the rest as a refreshingly original flick. Its really great to see Andy Samburg stretching his wings and bringing some serious tones in addition to his humor. No other young comic actor delivers funny lines like Samburg. Go see it and be ready to laugh and cry and smile. Looking forward to watching what happens next from the pen of Jones and McCormack.
