And Goodhart's ingenious twist on the conventional love-triangle takes the sentimental weight out of the usual wet blanket that hangs over traditional romantic comedies.This movie is bright and buoyant and makes us laugh at ourselves more than at mere jokes.After one pitiful, anti-romantic (yet soul-soaring) night together, Rose flees without leaving her phone number.Nonetheless, Bill thinks his karma might finally be coming around and that he's found his sad-sack love-match.It manages to be morbidly dark, joyfully funny and unsentimentally touching all at the same time.The storyline itself is genuinely fresh; unlike so many other films at this festival, I can't think of another previous movie to compare it to.
Finally: a romantic comedy with mutually flawed lovers, where no sacrifice or self- improvement is necessary for them to win happiness and each other.
Robbie's hapless, unassuming brother Bill (Nick Kroll) knows the real Robbie to be arrogant, selfish and rude, but he still guide-dog- faithfully runs every marathon by Robbie's side and never makes a peep when he doesn't receive any accolades, or when even his own parents continually criticize him.
One night, Bill escapes the relentless Robbie- worship by hitting up the local bar, where despite his best efforts to present himself as unworthy and unappealing, he gets lucky with an attractive and like-hearted woman named Rose (Jenny Slate).
Bill is guilt-ridden because Robbie's blindness was the result of a childhood accident in which he was involved.
Rose is a guilt-ridden because immediately after she told her fiancé she wanted to break up with him, he distractedly crossed the street and was hit and killed by a bus.
