Late bloomer Amelia, played by Christine Weatherup has spent the first three decades of her life alone, reading books and working as a receptionist for an eccentric Life Coach. At the urging of her boss, she starts to search for a soulmate.
Daniel (Bobby Moynihan, SNL) is a kind and introverted client at the office. He and Amelia share many of the same idiosyncrasies, fears, and overall naivety. Amelia finds her second prospect from clues written in the margins of a book. Leonard (Micah Hauptman, Everest), whose originality and unpredictability immediately attract her, leads the story into a Felliniesque and humor-filled entanglement.
Liz Manashil directs a cast of talented actors to make her oddball characters come alive.
This quirky and endearing film will bring audiences together, like Bread and Butter, in an experience both heartwarming and distinctly human. –Cristin Carlin
