Starstruck

Summary:

London-based New Zealand comedian Rose Matafeo wrote and stars in this romantic comedy about an average woman who unknowingly hooks up with a movie star (Hulu’s Four Weddings and a Funeral’s Nikesh Patel) on New Year’s Eve. Despite living in very, very different worlds, they try to make their relationship work. It’s a clever comedy from a fresh new voice. British newspaper The Times called it an “expertly crafted old-school screwball comedy, crackling with wit and sexual chemistry.” It aired on the BBC already, but it’s streaming as an HBO Max original here in America sometime this month.

Quick Takes

From Steve Greene at IndieWire:
