review by
Mike Haberfelner

The early days of 2020: Like everybody else, Jason (Ian Stout) has heard about the Corona virus, but like almost everybody else doesn't take it very seriously let alone would call it a "pandemic". A few weeks later, his hometown Portland, like much of the USA, is under lockdown, and while Jason has always thought he, a semi-successful playwright, would be well-equipped for spending time on his own, being cut off everyone else shows him he has only very few people to virtually talk to, especially since his relationship to his father and brother has soured in recent years. But he's on a dating app where he meets lovely Sorrell (Tiffany Groben), who like him seems a little lost, and thus they get along great during their video chats that take them through the lonely weeks ... until things relax a bit and they agree to meet in person - but then Sorrell doesn't show ...


Among the first films to directly deal with the pandemic and lockdown, and actually filmed entirely during the days of Corona, this is actually a quite touching romance that's pretty much exactly about what the title suggests, but manages to not over-dramatize things but concentrates on the new trivial of a totally changed (or at least reduced) world, and as a result the romance between Jason and Sorrell becomes to tangible, because it's given its time to grow, doesn't sprout out of big gestures but develops in conversation that only slowly turn into the (believable) for more. And a very subtle direction gives this growth enough space while the two grounded central performances make the film feel real - and maybe one of the most romantic movies to come out of 2020.
