Rosaline (2022)
October 18, 2022 5:58 PM - Subscribe

Left heartbroken after Romeo begins to pursue her cousin Juliet, Rosaline schemes to foil the famous romance and win back her guy in this comedic twist of Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet.

It's currently at 75% on Rotten Tomatoes which I think is fair but also, you know what movie this is. This movie knows what it is. It has a better cast than it needs and the costumes are pretty.

Kaitlyn Dever is a delight here.

Streaming on Hulu.

I read the description above and thought "A Tom Stoppage type Shakespearean farce."

Then I watched the trailer - hard pass.

75% on RT seems high.

Tom Stoppard.

But yeah, this is... not that.

It's a YA rom-com (based on a YA novel). It's not high art but it's fun.

This was fun, and better than expected. The dialogue was amusing. Kaitlyn Dever shines.
