Plot: When soon to be divorced Sasha (Lorraine) struggles to move on with her sex life guilt free she decides she needs to help her soon to be ex-husband Kyle (Hoskins) find someone new. What follows is a series of crazy online dates that Kyle goes through to try and make his ex-wife happy, while both still try to stay friends.

 

Verdict: A very good indie romantic comedy

Story: When it comes to love stories we usually get the plan old boy meets girl, falls in love deals with something and live happily ever after. More recently we are getting more and more stories that deal with love and moving on. I liked the story as we have all been there where we question whether it is right or wrong to move on. We have the support friends that give advice that we can be too stubborn to listen to while it turns out to be right. (9/10)

 

Actor Review: Suzi Lorraine – Sasha the ex-wife trying to move on with her life by helping her ex-husband move on with his all while coping with the denial of the feelings for him still. Good lead performance that plays out as an anti-romantic role. (8/10)
