When I think of films that are true to life and showcase couples that portray real actual people; down to dialogue, mannerisms, and situational circumstances, What We Wanted is a good example of that.
Nothing in this script ever comes across as forced, over the top or over-dramatized.
I'm in a similar age group as the two married couples on screen, and it's relatable on many levels. So I can confidently vouch on its authenticity regarding the subject matters addressed.
In real life I have either met these people, know these people, and in some instances, I am these people.
Really grateful to find quality films like this on Netflix every now and then.
