The New Romantic

The best rom com I’ve seen in a long time. Funny, poignant, sex-positive and really entertaining. Millennial and Gen Z realities of navigating sex and relationships and finding oneself in the age of Tinder, debt loads, sugar babies, and the apparent death of romance. The film treats its subjects compassionately, never veering into vulgar, gross-out humour, or judgement. Carly Stone is one to watch. One of my VIFF faves so far.
