The Boy Downstairs 12A

The Boy Downstairs

This Nora Ephron-esque Manhattan-set romantic comedy follows a young woman forced to revisit a former relationship, whilst adapting to her life back in New York after a two-year stint in London.

Zosia Mamet is a breath of fresh air as Diana, navigating the rite of passage of every single New Yorker: the search for the perfect apartment. She finds a jewel of a home, only to realise her downstairs neighbour is actually her ex Ben (Matthew Shear), whose heart she broke when she left town. She decides to stick it out and keep the apartment, but her closeness to Ben - and his new relationship with their real-estate agent - means she must re-examine a love she thought was behind her...

A fresh, fun and assured film about young love, it's a knowing exploration of millennial romance and a vibrant coming-of-age tale. Enjoy.
