WHAT’S IT ABOUT?

Rosaline (Dever), a sharp and idealistic young woman, is suddenly dumped by her lover, Romeo (Allen), after he falls in love with her cousin, Juliet (Merced). In response, Rosaline attempts to foil their newfound romance and win him back, but she soon goes on a journey of self-discovery, where she ends up helping the star-crossed lovers get back together…

IN ONE SENTENCE, WHY SHOULD YOU BE EXCITED?

Shakespeare’s world-famous tragedy of Romeo and Juliet gets a comedically revisionist take by placing the focus on minor character Rosaline, played with lovable charm by Kaitlyn Dever.
