Somebody I Used to Know (2023, D: D. Franco) S: Alison Brie, Jay Ellis

Poster is slightly NSFW.
Spoiler:



Workaholic TV producer Ally (Alison Brie) faces a major professional setback which sends her running to the comforts of her hometown. She spends a whirlwind evening reminiscing with her first love Sean (Jay Ellis) and starts to question everything about the person she's become. Things only get more confusing when she discovers Sean is getting married to Cassidy (Kiersey Clemons) whose confidence and creative convictions remind Ally of who she used to be. Directed by Dave Franco and written by Franco & Alison Brie, 'Somebody I Used to Know' is an unconventional love story about three people who unexpectedly help each other re-discover who they really are, where they came from, and where.

There were 3 romcoms released on various streaming services this weekend. This was the best one.

I read an interview in which Brie and Franco said they were inspired by modern romcoms such as My Best Friend’s Wedding and Sleepless in Seattle. This is no classic (and it’s raunchier than those), but it’s an entertaining-enough watch, especially if you like Brie. 3.5/5 stars for me.

Also, the poster
