What if you saved a souvenir from every relationship you’ve ever been in? The Broken Heart Gallery follows the always unique Lucy, a 20-something art gallery assistant living in New York City, who also happens to be an emotional hoarder. After she gets dumped by her latest boyfriend, Lucy is inspired to create The Broken Heart Gallery, a pop-up space for the items love has left behind. Word of the gallery spreads, encouraging a movement and a fresh start for all the romantics out there, including Lucy herself.
Director: Natalie Krinsky
Cast: Geraldine Viswanathan, Dacre Montgomery
Review: The Broken Hearts Gallery doesn’t rewrite the love-story rule-book but thrives on a mixture of snark and soul. The result is among the sparkiest romcoms of the year, and finds a new genre queen in Geraldine Viswanathan. The movie is an endearing and affable rom-com that overcomes its predictability, continuity gaffes and insistent comedy with a fantastic cast, an interesting premise and amusingly droll dialogue from writer/director Natalie Krinsky.
Verdict: Worth the Popcorn
