5 to 7


We all have our favorite genres and every film critic has his or her own biases.  Can't be helped.  And a May-December romance starring Anton Yelchin certainly wasn't close to the top of my list last year at the TriBeCa Film Festival.  But I had a free window and decided to give it a try.  And you know what?  It's absolutely fantastic.  It's the perfect blend of romance, comedy, and drama, with a surprisingly perfect cast, all delivering perfect performances.  It was the best surprise of the festival last year and you should watch it this weekend on Video on Demand.

Grade: A

Who is this movie for?  Anyone who loves a great romantic drama sprinkled with some comedy.  And anyone with a heart.  Basically just anyone.
