Life is fucked. Love is the long sought-after holy grail, the salvation from this mess of existence. But love itself is quite messy and often leaves us in a sad, sorry state. There’s something particularly sad however, and emotionally perverse about this Tinder generation and their brand of disposable love. One thing is certain, no one does relationships today like Drake Doremus and screenwriter Ben York Jones.
Easily Doremus' best movie; the big reason is that he's finally found a great leading lady in Costa, who's just sublime - the chemistry and ease she shares with Hoult feels completely real and tangible. I didn't like his choice of leading lady in Breathe In or Like Crazy, Felicity Jones - nor did I like his leading lady in Equals, Kristen Stewart. Doremus's best work, though, remains the web-series The Beauty Inside.
