You and I are stuck under the umbrella term of a ‘millennial’, something which we proudly brag about, and other times conveniently discard to ignore the perception attached with it. So the world of the internet has opened new doors for everything and that also includes a new way of dating. In the age of dating apps and speedy romance, ‘Newness’ is a movie which looks extremely relatable at many levels. Two people, meet through an app, and sparks fly quickly.
But love is not always enough, right? They end up in an open relationship and while they think it’s all chill, it’s actually not because insecurities crawl in. Martin (Nicholas Hoult) and Gabi (Laia Costa) try hard to understand that it’s pretty screwed up for them.
The director of the movie is the same man who gave us ‘Like Crazy’, a movie about distant lovers and the problems they face. Drake Doremus seems to have done a great job in showing the reality.
