Due to be released Feb. 13th in theaters and VOD is a brand new Rom Com from Marc Lawrence the director of "Music and Lyrics" and "Two Week Notice." It stars everybody's favorite out of sorts Brit Hugh Grant and the ever beautiful Marisa Tomei! They're joined in this "riches to rags" love story by Oscar nominee J.K. Simmons (Whiplash) and Allison Janney (Mom. Masters of Sex)
The official synopsis goes like this-
Once upon a time, Keith Michaels (Hugh Grant - About a Boy, Love Actually) was an Award-winning Hollywood screenwriter, but divorce and a string of unsuccessful films have left him with nothing but bad debts and blank pages. So when his agent arranges a job as guest screenwriting professor at a remote university in upstate New York, a desperate Keith can’t say no. Initially hoping to give minimal effort to actual teaching so he can focus on his next script, Keith unexpectedly finds himself becoming invested in his students lives, including Holly (Marisa Tomei, The Wrestler), a single mom looking to start her own new chapter. The Rewrite features an all-star cast, including J.K. Simmons (Whiplash), Allison Janney (“Mom”), Chris Elliott (Groundhog Day) and Bella Heathcote (Pride and Prejudice and Zombies).
This definitely looks like a charming romantic date movie for Valentine's Day. It certainly has all the key elements of a good rom com.
The Rewite is from RLJE/Image Entertainment and due out in theaters, on VOD and iTunes February 13th
