After making an instant connection, law student Bea (Sydney Sweeney) and financial analyst Ben (Glen Powell) find their initial passion quickly dwindling after a misunderstanding. They cross paths again months later when Bea’s sister begins dating a friend of Ben’s – which soon leads to a destination wedding in Sydney. Far from home and stuck together for the duration of their trip to Australia, Bea and Ben do what any two mature adults would do in the circumstances: pretend to be a couple to keep up appearances.
Shot around Sydney last year, this slick and entertaining new take on Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing stars some ridiculously-good-looking people alongside local talent like Bryan Brown and Rachel Griffiths. No prizes for guessing how it turns out, but the film makes for a perfect diversion for Valentine’s Day!
