Cristin Milioti in Trailer for Quirky Romantic Comedy 'It Had to Be You'
"I always thought that by the time I got married, I would be different." Samuel Goldwyn Films has debuted a trailer for an indie romantic comedy called It Had to Be You, about a woman who freaks out when she learns her boyfriend is going to propose to her. Actress Cristin Milioti (seen in The Wolf of Wall Street, The Brass Teapot, "Fargo", "The Mindy Project") stars, with Dan Soder, Halley Feiffer, Kate Simses, Erica Sweany, Mark Gessner and Rachel York. This is definitely very quirky, but there's also some charm to it, mostly because Cristin Milioti is quite talented and it's nice to see her in a fun role like this. The trailer ends rather abruptly, like there's more going on - but I guess we have to see the film to find out what.
Here's the official trailer (+ poster) for Sasha Gordon's It Had to Be You, in high def from Apple:
Sonia (Cristin Milioti) is a neurotic jingle writer who's always dreamt of a big and exciting life. Surprised by a sudden proposal and subsequent ultimatum from her easy-going boyfriend, Chris (Dan Soder), Sonia has to decide whether she'll join the ranks of her married friends or take a leap and pursue her fantasies. A whimsical romantic comedy that's raunchy and yet gentle, 'It Had To Be You' explores the choices women face today while satirizing cultural expectations of gender and romance. It Had to Be You is both written and directed by filmmaker Sasha Gordon, a composer making her feature directorial debut after a short film. Based on a story by Levi Abrino and Sasha Gordon. This first premiered at the Austin Film Festival in 2015. Samuel Goldwyn opens It Had to Be You in limited theaters on October 21st this month. Curious?
