A washed up singer is given a couple days to compose a chart-topping hit for an aspiring teen sensation. Though he's never written a decent lyric in his life, he sparks with an offbeat younger woman with a flair for words.
A grieving father in a downward spiral stumbles across a box of his recently deceased son's demo tapes and lyrics. Shocked by the discovery of this unknown talent, he forms a band in the hope of finding some catharsis.
Contemporary independent cinema's take on the musical genre, in the vein of 'Across the Universe' - note, if there's one thing hipsters hate, it's cheesiness, so don't expect 'Mamma Mia'. And make sure to give 'Sunshine on Leith' a watch, for a British feel-good dramedy!
The RomComs set during mid-life crises beg the question: Why ponder mortality when you can sit awkwardly on a park bench with John Cusack? Make sure to check movies like 'Crazy Stupid Love' and 'Begin Again'
A bunch of 21st century, Allen-esque indies that follow neurotic, aimless, and verbose New Yorkers, as they chase equally neurotic (inevitably white) love interests around the tree-lined streets of Brooklyn. Quite a different picture than you'd get from a Spike Lee.
The most prominent comedy director and producer of our generation, Apatow is undisputed master of the lovable man-child genre, boasting such modern classics as 'Knocked Up', 'Forgetting Sarah Marshall', and 'The 40 Year Old Virgin'. Check out 'Celtic Pride' for one of his less well-known early works (although admittedly it may be less well-known for a reason).
Explore recent high notes of the musical drama genre, including gruff country epic 'Crazy Heart' and tender Brian Wilson biopic 'Love & Mercy'. Will make you want to pick up that guitar you spent $175 on and never played!
Keira's had it tough over the years, being a pirate on the high seas, a London gangster's girlfriend, Queen Amidala's decoy during times of war and witnessing the end of the world! Lucky she's managed to keep up a few romances along the way for us to enjoy, thanks Keira!
