Drinking Buddies

See Showtime Listings for This Week

The new romantic comedy (with beer!) from writer/director Joe Swanberg (Hannah Takes the Stairs), starring Olivia Wilde, Anna Kendrick, Ron Livingston and Jake Johnson!


“Mature, funny and thoughtful. If this is the future of independent romantic comedies, sign me up.” - Eric Snider, Twitch

“Its heady mix of belly laughs and sweet romance is intoxicating … a feel-good film with many moments of genuine laughter and an infectious sense of fun.” – Flossie Topping, Screen

“A genuinely affecting film so charming and inviting, you'll feel like you're hanging with your own drinking buddies.” – Tara Aquino, Complex


Kate (Olivia Wilde, The Change-Up) and Luke (Jake Johnson, New Girl) are co-workers at a Chicago craft brewery, where they spend their days drinking, flirting and even occasionally working. They're perfect for each other, except that they're both in relationships. Luke is in the midst of reluctant marriage talks with Jill (Anna Kendrick, Pitch Perfect), his girlfriend of six years, and Kate is playing it cool with her music producer boyfriend Chris (Ron Livingston, Office Space). When Kate and Luke unexpectedly find themselves alone for a weekend, these two “drinking buddies” begin to wonder if they’re actually destined to be together. But you know what makes the line between "friends" and "more than friends" really blurry? Beer. This hilariously charming comedy of modern relationships fueled by microbrews is the new film from acclaimed indie writer/director Joe Swanberg (Hannah Takes the Stairs). (Dir. by Joe Swanberg, 2013, USA, 90 mins., Rated R, Magnolia Pictures) Digital
