What If
It has been 25 years since "When Harry Met Sally," the ultimate can-men-and-women-be-just-friends romantic comedy, hit theatres, and as we've recently discussed, few films of that sort have matched it in that time. But lately Hollywood has been taking a crack at that unique premise with mixed results, most notably with "Friends With Benefits" and "No Strings Attached," both released within months of each other and both not very good. So "Goon" and "Fubar" director Michael Dowse has a high bar to reach with "What If."

What If
Let's say you meet someone at party, and you really hit it off. You spend the night talking together, you walk her home and you even exchange numbers....only to find out this perfect person you've already started falling for has a boyfriend. This is the predicament facing Daniel Radcliffe's Wallace in "What If."

What If? Zoe Kazan
It was just last week when we explored the state of the rom-com, 25 years after the release of the still excellent, funny and very real "When Harry Met Sally." Indeed, the landscape these days is pretty dire for the genre, but like we said, there are gems to be found in smaller, indie films. And one that premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival to strong buzz last year is "What If," and as it heads to theaters next month, a couple of new clips are here to give you a peek at this charmer.

What If? Zoe Kazan
There's true heartbreak and then there's being stuck in the friend zone, and it's arguable that both can be equally painful. It's one thing to lose a love, but what if you never got a chance to experience it with the person you're pining for in the first place? Well, "What If" can sympathize.

What If? Zoe Kazan
Buzz has been quietly building for a little while around Michael Dowse's upcoming movie “What If,” which screened at TIFF last year to generally good reviews (though we missed it). That buzz was only slightly deadened by a confusing last-minute title change from “The F Word,” because that would have been too naughty, or something. It stars Zoe Kazan (“Ruby Sparks”) and Daniel Radcliffe (nope, can't think what he's been in off the top of our heads—something quite big, though), along with Adam Driver and Rafe Spall, following a young man who's stuck in the friend zone with a girl who likes a lot more than that. And now, the first clip from the film has arrived.

In Your Eyes
Although it only premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival a little over a week ago, the Joss Whedon-penned supernatural romance “In Your Eyes” is already available on demand via Vimeo and in a strange bit of timing, the first trailer for the film has only now just been released.

In Your Eyes
Before he became one of the more powerful filmmakers in Hollywood, Joss Whedon was known for his quips. These were rattled off and recited by a series of characters who all spoke in the same easily identifiable, highly stylized, pop culture-infused geek language of Whedon himself. (Whedon’s best collaborators, like Drew Goddard and Marti Noxon, knew how to approximate this code better than others.) But there was always another side of Whedon, exhibited in the best episodes of “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” and its cruelly underrated spin-off “Angel,” one that was incredibly sensitive and sincere. It’s this Whedon, the one more interested in pulling at your heartstrings than tickling your funny bone that is on display in “In Your Eyes,” a new supernatural romance that, if you can get past the occasional sappiness, is a pretty moving, offbeat little love story.

So, you might remember back in January, director Michael Dowse to a Toronto audience that his forthcoming romantic comedy "The F Word" was being retitled to "If You're Lucky." CBS Films were quick to swoop and claim that no such switch was occurring that the original title would be sticking. Well, it would appear that Dowse was right.

After winning the Best Actress Award at the 2009 Tribeca Film Festival for Bradley Rust Gray’s “The Exploding Girl,” Zoe Kazan added a big-budget rom-com (“It’s Complicated”) and more indie dramas (“Meek’s Cutoff”) to her resume, starred on Broadway (“A Behanding in Spokane”) with Christopher Walken, and wrote the charming (and underrated) screenplay for “Ruby Sparks,” in which she starred with her longtime partner Paul Dano.

The Pretty One
There are movies about twins and there are movies about switching identities and there is “The Pretty One,” which uses both conceits for its tale of self and lack thereof. And to be fair, the premise of this comedic drama — that’s ultimately much more affecting and genuinely melancholy than you’d expect — is a little cutesy and cloying on the surface. And admittedly, the picture takes some time to find its bearings.
