SLEEPING WITH OTHER PEOPLE

Drama, Female Director(s), Comedy, Female Screenwriter(s)
Jake (Jason Sudeikis) and Lainey (Alison Brie) lost their virginity to each other years ago, and have since gone on to become miserable failures in their romantic relationships. Guilty of serial infidelity, sex addiction, and self-sabotage, each end up at the same co-counseling group. Reunited, they swear to keep their relationship strictly platonic, while they continue to sleep around with other people. In this romantic comedy that refreshingly balances raunchy laughs and heart-warming moments, writer-director Leslye Headland (Bachelorette) asks, can men and women just be friends?

Featuring strong performances from Amanda Peet, Adam Scott, and Natasha Lyonne Sleeping With Other People is a nuanced look at contemporary relationships. With the incredible on- screen chemistry between Sudeikis and Brie, and a plot that defies predictability, Director Headland adds real suspense and dimension to the rom-com tradition.
