"A genuinely funny, very sparky, and brilliantly performed British romantic comedy" – Henry Firtzherbert, Daily Express
Starting where other romantic comedies finish, I Give It a Year hilariously lifts the veil on the realities of the first year of marriage. Since they met at a party, ambitious high-flyer Nat (Rose Byrne) and struggling novelist Josh (Rafe Spall) have been deliriously happy despite their differences. Josh is a thinker, Nat's a doer, but the spark between them is undeniable. Their wedding is a dream come true, but no one - family, friends and even the minister who marries them - is convinced that they will last. Josh's ex-girlfriend, Chloe (Anna Faris), and Nat's handsome American client Guy (Simon Baker) could offer attractive alternatives. With their first anniversary approaching, neither wants to be the first to give up, but will they make it? I Give It a Year also stars Stephen Merchant, Minnie Driver, Jason Flemyng and Olivia Colman. A deliciously bawdy romantic comedy with a wry British edge, I Give it a Year was written and directed by Dan Mazer, writer of Borat and Brüno. (Dir. by Dan Mazer, 2013, UK, 97 mins., Rated R, Magnolia Pictures) Digital
