Brian decided after 3 weeks, on April 21, that he had to see her again. That means it was March when he met her. Neither was dressed appropriately. She walked with Brian while wearing a sun dress after the museum. Trees were all in bloom. The weather in NY in late March is often FREEZING but OK let's assume it was warm. But the trees could not be in full bloom. See more »

What a terrific movie!
7 July 2015 | by merridew-2See all my reviews

It's a love story. It's a coming of age story. It's a class-of- cultures story. But to call "5 to 7" a "romantic comedy" is to evoke images of all sorts of rom-com clichés that this film does its best to avoid. There were moments when I expected the movie to go in a predictable direction, and it didn't. I thought this was going to be a movie about a young, sheltered writer who could never achieve success until he stopped writing and started living -- but, while this played some part, it wasn't exactly that, either.

Best of all, I adored every character in this movie. There are no villains. The only villain is life -- the inherent complications in good people's lives that, try as you might, you can't dodge. The two principals, Anton Yelchin and Bérénice Marlohe, were perfect. Frank Langella was hilarious; Glenn Close touching. And the sprinkling of real-life people into the story was handled exactly right.

It's a shame that this movie has had such a limited release. It is truly a wonderful film.
