Long Shot (2019)
First screened in July 2019
Director: Jonathan Levine.

Screenplay: Dan Sterling and Liz Hannah (based on a screen story by Dan Sterling).

Twitter Capsule: Seems for a long time to be seeking a tone and a center. Builds appeal as it goes, despite some late narrative missteps.

VOR:   Any romantic comedy executed with this much conviction is a relative standout these days. I believed its interest in Charlotte. Awkward but worthy.
