You believe in the 'magic of the universe,' and are candid, semi-mysterious and looking for that 'thing' that happens in movies.
I'm a nebbish, anxious Woody Allen type who prefers the term 'hopeful romantic' to 'hopeless romantic,' and my idea of foreplay involves ripping open the condom wrapper.
Matt Sadowski's adorably bittersweet romantic comedy Pretend We're Kissing plays out like a missed-connection classified ad, with Dov Tiefenbach and Tommie-Amber Pirie as young urbanites whose courtship is hyper-awkward and cringy-fun to watch. Tiefenbach plays Benny, a gentle sap who can't get out of his own way, while Pirie is Jordan, a fresh-faced spur-of-the-moment gal.
Also on hand is the delightful Zoe Kravitz as Benny's platonic, occasionally nude and flighty roommate.
Set in Toronto's downtown, – cameo turns from the Cameron House and the Rex happen – the likable indie flick will connect with both hip cynics and those with rosier hopes.
A match made in certain heavens for some.
