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

You had to live it
29 April 2017 | by angelosoares-rSee all my reviews

Although some things might be exaggerated or exacerbated: if you ever had a lover that was your best friend but for one reason or another didn't work out, if you still smile when you see each other, if you know in your heart that your love is eternal but you also know it will never work like it did in the past because it has been tarnished by life unforgiving circumstances... give this movie a chance. It will resonate with you.

8/10, I feel like this movie was different on it's approach and I found Rashida Jones writing refreshing/different.
