I want you back: plot and cast
The official synopsis of the film reads:
“Peter and Emma are complete strangers, but when they meet, one thing immediately binds 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 compassion 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 of having lost their chance at happily ever after in their thirties and horrified at the prospect of starting over, Peter and Emma hatch a desperate plot to win back the loves of their lives. Each will do whatever it takes to end their exes’ newfound relationships and make them run back into their arms.”
So we can see that the story is quite fresh and interesting.
The main cast is joined by Mason Gooding, Clark Backo, Dylan Gelula. Also included are Jami Gertz, Isabel May and Luke David Blumm.
