Story of Izzy Klein, a young woman fresh out of college as she strikes up and ruins relationships with several men, and struggles to navigate the failures of post-college adulthood, leaning on her mother and older sister for support.
Dan Delaney (Avan Jogia) and Franny Winters (Eve Hewson) get a quickie city hall marriage. He's a struggling actor trying to break into Hollywood. He gets to housesit and dog-sit for hot starlet Hailey Turner. Franny gets a job writing for reality TV game show Duck, Duck, Goose. She finds herself falling for the head writer, Noah Bearinger (Hamish Linklater). Is the first year truly the hardest...
I find Avan's adorably awkwardness not that appealing as a leading man. This movie is more compelling coming from her side of the story. His side is much less compelling. His jealousy has foundation but lacks any appeal. Her inner conflict is the most compelling part of the story and it would be better to simply concentrate on that. Eve seems to be an interesting actress. I find that if it's a man's story, the wife would be a smaller two dimensional character. This should be Franny's story and Dan should be fine as a limited character.
