What If is a dramedy (a drama-comedy) following the lives of Wallace, a medical school dropout with a bad history of relationships, and Chantry, a quirky animator living with her long-time boyfriend. After swearing off relationships, Wallace meets Chantry, and the two hit it off immediately, becoming best friends. But they begin to wonder... what if your best friend is also the love of your life?
Why You Should Watch It
After getting over the whole boy wizard phase, Daniel Radcliffe lost nearly all taste in traditionally-acclaimed movies. And I'm so incredibly glad he did. This film is one of the quirkier of the indie films I'll feature, including random animated sequences and some slow-moving moments, but it's worth it. The supporting cast includes Adam Driver (The Force Awakens), Mackenzie Davis (The Martian), and Rafe Spall (Shaun of the Dead)--all fabulous--but Daniel Radcliffe is the adorkable star of this show. I don't really like Zoe Kazan (Chantry), but Radcliffe more than makes up for her. This film will speak to any complicated relationship you've ever had no idea what to do with. It will make you laugh, then it'll break your heart, and then it'll try to make it up to you again with the ending. You'll have to let me know if you think it succeeds.
It's complicated. All this love shit's complicated. And that's good. Because if it's too simple, you've got no reason to try, and if you've got no reason to try, you don't.
