Boyfriends Juggle 'Almost Love' in New Rom-Com Trailer
Scott Evans and Augustus Prew star!
After five years together, Scott Evans and Augustus Prew have to figure out the next stage of their relationship in upcoming rom-com Almost Love, written and directed by queer filmmaker Mike Doyle.
“There are not really movies out there where it’s just starting at that five-year point and you miss all the happy stuff," Evans told NewNowNext about the film. In Almost Love, the couples are "at the point of asking, ’Are we supposed to be together?’ You keep missing each other in a relationship, and it doesn’t get talked about, but you just get comfortable. You turn into roommates.”
The official description reads:
A romantic comedy about a group of friends navigating love, life, and relationships as they reach the mid-point. At the heart of the story is Adam (Scott Evans), a talented painter now stuck ghost painting for successful contemporary artist, Ravella Brewer (Patricia Clarkson). He and Marklin (Augustus Prew) are at the five-year mark of their relationship. They don't have kids, they're not married, and are face to face with the existential question “Is that all there is?”
Their friend circle is confronting the same question in a whole host of ways: Elizabeth (Kate Walsh), Adam’s best friend, is at the 15 year mark of her marriage, ready to bail when she discovers her husband’s inappropriate text relationship with a younger woman; friend Cammy (Michelle Buteau) is dating Henry (Colin Donnell), but they never leave the house; Haley (Zoe Chao) is trying to figure out if her feelings for Scott James (Christopher Gray) are maternal or something more.
"Everyone’s a bit of a mess," the description concludes, "but at the same time eternally optimistic at finding new ways to make things work."
Almost Love premieres in theaters and on-demand on April 3. Watch the trailer below:
