Katie Holmes, Josh Duhamel and Anna Paquin in The Romantics trailer
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
I’ve always been a sucker for high school or college friend reunion type movies. INDIAN SUMMER being one of the better, more underrated of the like-films out there. The upcoming dramedy THE ROMANTICS looks like another good reunion themed film and it centers on a group of friends that meet up when two of them decide to get married. Of course, all is now well because the groom-to-be and the maid of honor used to have a thing and that thing may or may not be over. The film has a great ensemble cast that includes Katie Holmes, Anna Paquin, Josh Duhamel, Malin Akerman, Elijah Wood, Adam Brody, Candace Bergen and Jeremy Strong. Galt Niederhoffer is directing from the novel that he wrote.
People still like to give Katie Holmes a hard time, but she plays the tortured-girl-longing-for-love character better than anyone, so this is a great role for her. The film opens everywhere September 10th. Watch the trailer here.
