Los Angeles may be a ubiquitous location in Hollywood movies but we rarely get a sense of the place; unlike New York which I’m sure – should I ever get to visit – will feel a bit like a movie set. This movies uses introduces us to LA as the protagonists tour the town getting to know one another and it looks great in the black and white cinematography of Robert Murphy.
Despite being a romcom the film sticks well with its indie credentials and avoids the inevitably cloying resolution of Hollywood in the genre. Excellent soundtrack too.
