Dating an indie girl
Ceremony (2011)Ceremony is what it would look like if Wes Anderson made Wedding Crashers.
Written and directed by Max Winkler (Henry's son), it tells the story of a young children's-book author (Michael Angarano) who crashes the wedding weekend of an older woman (Uma Thurman) he's had an intimate letter-writing relationship with.
Plaza attempts to be that partner, while trying to actually write a story about him for said newspaper.
But then the rom-com powers take hold, and she starts believing him and falling for him, and there is some kissing, and so on, and so on. The Baxter (2005)Michael Showalter was always curious about the romantic comedy, even before he co-wrote this year's rom-com parody They Came Together.
Ironically, she seems more alive in this role than any she's yet played. Me and You and Everyone We Know (2005)In the brain of Miranda July (who writes, directs, and stars in the movie), this is what a romantic comedy looks like.
It stars Dane De Haan and Aubrey Plaza, the latter of which is particularly dynamic as the zombie.
The movie is primarily about Jones's journey to move on, and she is terrific in the film, which she also co-wrote.
