Storyline

Justin Long and Emmy Rossum are star-crossed lovers whose relationship blooms and unravels over the course of six years in this mysterious, dazzlingly original romance. When a chance encounter brings together the cynical Dell (Long) and the quick-witted Kimberly (Rossum), the stage is set for a tempestuous love affair that unfolds like a puzzle. As the film zigzags back and forth in time-from a meteor shower in LA, to an encounter in a Paris hotel room, to a fateful phone call-an unforgettable portrait of a relationship emerges. Sumptuously shot and boasting incredible chemistry between the leads, Comet is a one-of-a-kind cosmic love story. Written by IFC Films

Good enough
7 December 2014 | by Red_IdentitySee all my reviews

The aesthetic here is really incredible. Of course, it goes a bit overboard, but it works as well as it needs to. The acting is also really effective, but the dialogue just gets too pretentious at times. The beginning, especially, got sort of insufferable. But at one point within the first 20 minutes, I sort of got into the film and its characters. It was entertaining enough, even if the film didn't really do anything all that original. Very well done and composed as a whole, and Long was convincing, but the film really could've been something great and instead it's only halfway decent. But maybe that's enough for some people, I guess it just depends on each individual person.
