(2020) (Timothée Chalamet, Elle Fanning) (PG-13)
- QUICK TAKE:
- Romantic Comedy: A college student becomes increasingly anxious and dismayed when his planned day in Manhattan with his college girlfriend keeps getting delayed.
Gatsby Wells (TIMOTHÉE CHALAMET) and Ashleigh Enright (ELLE FANNING) are romantically involved students at Yardley College. When she gets the chance to interview famous movie director Roland Pollard (LIEV SCHREIBER) in Manhattan for the school paper, Gatsby decides they should make a fun weekend of it in the Big Apple.
With her interview turning into a private screening of Roland's latest film -- that he despises -- with the screenwriter, Ted Davidoff (JUE LAW), Gatsby has time to kill and ends up briefly appearing in a kissing scene with his former girlfriend's now grown-up younger sister, Chan (SELENA GOMEZ), in a low-budget film being shot by their mutual friend.
With Roland flying the coop and going off on a bender, Ashleigh and Ted go looking for him, only to discover that his wife, Connie (REBECCA HALL), is having an affair. He ends up sending her to the studio to search for Roland and it's there that she meets dashing young actor Francisco Vega (DIEGO LUNA), with both ending up smitten with each other.
With Ashleigh ending up MIA, Gatsby resorts to hiring an escort, Terry (KELLY ROHRBACH), to pretend to be Ashleigh at a party being thrown by his wealthy parents (CHERRY JONES and JONATHAN HOGAN). As the day wears on, it's unclear how all of the developments will affect Gatsby and Ashleigh's relationship.
