I Want You Back: Plot and Cast
The official synopsis of the movie reads as follows:
“Peter and Emma are total strangers, but when they meet, one thing instantly bonds them: they were both unexpectedly dumped by their respective partners, Anne and Noah, on the same weekend. As the saying goes, ‘misery loves company,’ but their commiseration turns into a mission when they see on social media that their exes have happily moved on to new romances, Anne with Logan and Noah with Ginny.
“Terrified that, in their 30s, they have lost their shot at happily ever after and horrified at the prospect of having to start over, Peter and Emma hatch a desperate plot to win the loves of their lives back. Each will do whatever it takes to put an end to their exes’ new relationships and send them running back to their arms.”
Thus we can see that the story is quite fresh and interesting.
The lead cast will be joined by Mason Gooding, Clark Backo, Dylan Gelula. Also included are Jami Gertz, Isabel May, and Luke David Blumm.
