1654 - How to Lose Your Lover
One of my new favorite ways to pick which film to watch is to chose randomly via Netflix in the made-up-categories. As a fan of both Jennifer Westfeldt & Paul Schneider it wasn't hard to get me to want this. A guy gets tired of living in L.A. and so decides to destroy his life there, but on the way out of town he meets the seemingly perfect woman and decides to stick around to test her out and deciding to be his true self and see if she'd still want to stick around.
This really is quite the charming and sweet film, nothing spectacular but easy to recommend. I even liked Tori Spelling in it! If you want a fun alternate indie rom-com, you could do a lot worse than this one. And if you can't find it under this title the alternate is 50 Ways to Leave Your Lover.
