Celeste And Jesse Forever (2012)

Celeste And Jesse Forever (2012)
Directed by: Lee Toland Krieger
Country: USA

Review: ‘Separated but good friends for life’ is the premise of “Celeste & Jesse Forever”, the third feature film from Lee Toland Krieger. Celeste and Jesse are married but living separately for quite some time. They are best friends since High School and share a lot of their lives with each other in a daily basis, taking advantage from the fact of being neighbors. This somewhat uncommitted relationship will be put at stake when Jesse announces he will be a dad and wants to divorce. Some funny situations worked well but it was on the dramatic side that Krieger made his higher bet. However, the good performances couldn’t make this story particularly interesting. It tried to convey a natural and unpretentious posture but it wasn’t always successful in its intents. The plot goes round and round in circles, trying to wrap every scene in smoothness while continues to extend the inevitable conclusions. Just for enthusiasts of sweet romantic dramas.
