Directed by Andy Fickman (2010’s ‘You Again’) and co-written by Taylor Jenkins Reid (the novel ‘Daisy Jones & the Six’), this romantic drama stars Phillipa Soo as Emma, a woman whose husband (Luke Bracey) is presumed dead, leaving her to mourn and, years later, get engaged to her longtime friend (Simu Liu). But then, the hubby comes home, forcing Emma to make one heck of a choice. Smart writing and honest performances keep this from becoming a treacly mess, but the utter lack of chemistry between Emma and her two beaus makes it a textbook case of what-could-have-been.

2.5/5 stars
