'Rosaline' Movie Review
Kaitlyn Dever leads an appealing cast in this spirited, witty romantic comedy that focuses on the other woman in Romeo’s life. Suddenly, all of Romeo’s time, affection, and perhaps most cuttingly, cringey love poetry is being directed towards the new love of his life, Rosaline seemingly now a passing fancy. Determined to win him back (even though any fool can see that Dario is a far better match), Rosaline plots to break up literature’s most famous pair, even as she can’t deny becoming friends with her cousin. The result is an uproarious comedy that delivers on several levels – it’s a smart, knowing romantic tale that is one of the stronger post-modern spins on Shakespeare to come along in a while.
