Have you ever saved a souvenir from every relationship you have been in or thought of doing so. If the answer is yes, this is the film for you. And if the answer is no, you can live through the life of Lucy (played by Geraldine Viswanathan) who does in fact does this. And a character that you are more then likely to fall in love with over the film.
Lucy who is also an emotional hoarder is dumped by her latest boyfriend Max at the start of the film. And lets just say that the scene when she loses her latest love at a fine New York gallery is entertaining and hilarious to say the least. Ah yes, the film is shot in New York with many picture perfect scenes across New York which is perfect for a rom com such as this. And with Selina Gomez as executive producer of the film, you know its going to have a great musical score, with some subtle promotion for herself.
Back getting back onto the film. Upon being dumped and meeting Nick in very strange circumstances, their two worlds collide when she decides to start the broken hearts gallery exhibition within the confines of a new hotel that Nick is building, abeilt being built at very slow pace. But this chance meeting between them changes their worlds forever going forward.
So we here have Lucy with all her spunk, positivism, and zest for life on a journey with Nick who is quiet, secretive and negative to the world. The question is how will they work together on the gallery getting up and going, progressing the hotel, but most importantly, letting go of their past loves, and moving forward and upwards in their lives for entire fresh new beginnings, and perhaps even true love.
The Broken Hearts Gallery is a energetic and enjoyable romantic comedy with the perfect amount of cheesiness, while at the same time heart warming.
The Broken Hearts Gallery is screening at cinemas across Australia from today.
