Overview

Indie filmmaker Joe Swanberg wrote and directed this romantic comedy drama centering on the sexual tension between craft-brewery employees Luke (Jake Johnson) and Kate (Olivia Wilde), who wrestle with their growing attraction to one another due to the fact that they're already both in committed relationships. With Luke's marriage-minded girlfriend Jill (Anna Kendrick) and Kate's boyfriend Chris (Ron Livingston) out of the picture for a weekend, the flirtatious co-workers learn there is no denying what the heart really wants.

Reviews:
"DRINKING BUDDIES, Joe Swanberg's nimble, knowing and altogether excellent new film, refuses to dance to the usual tune." - 08/22/2013 New York Times


"[Swanberg] gives us a script that sounds like real people talking....This is one of the best beer movies ever made." - 08/22/2013 Chicago Sun-Times


3.5 stars out of 4 -- "Awash in realistic dialogue, nuanced observations and plenty of beer, DRINKING BUDDIES is a low-key comedy that takes its time, while moving in intriguingly unexpected directions." - 08/22/2013 USA Today


"[The film is] striking, thanks to adroit widescreen framing by BEASTS OF THE SOUTHERN WILD cinematographer Ben Richardson." - 08/22/2013 A.V. Club


"[A] disarming ramble of a romantic comedy....The actors all blend terrifically..." -- Grade: B+ - 08/26/2013 Entertainment Weekly


4 stars out of 5 -- "Refreshing and nuanced, it’s WHEN HARRY MET SALLY played for plausible drama rather than big laughs..." - 10/28/2013 Total Film
