Mutual Friends-Coming To Theaters
Mutual Friends is a quirky off beat romance of interlocking tales of ten New Yorkers as truths and lies come to surface at a surprise party. Liv, played by Caitlin Fitzgerald has decided to get engaged to handsome successful “Christoph” played by Cheyenne Jackson. What more can a girl want right? However, to complicate matters comes Liv’s best friend commitment phobia “Nate” played by Peter Scanavino who realizes he is in love with Liv. Is it too late for him to win Liv’s heart? Or convince her he might be the ONE.
Now add a bevy of friends and relatives each with their own issues, bringing stress and drama to the scene as Liv struggles to throw the perfect party for Christoph. Well things are far from perfect as we follow this tale of friends, and as we take this journey with them some of us will resonate with these characters and their problems. I wish I can say more but you will just have to wait and catch this film when it opens in theaters.
