Netflix’s Someone Great is a great advocate of female friendship, something that isn’t really seen in Hollywood. Even rarer is the awesome main plot about the main character dealing with a devastating break up, that’s somehow handled really well.
Dumped by her long-term boyfriend, a music journalist recruits her two best friends for one last outrageous adventure in New York City before she moves to San Francisco.
If you’ve ever had to breakup with someone you thought you’d spend the rest of your life with, you already know how painful that is. For Jenny and Nate, the end of the road has come. They were near-perfect for each other, until the workload started coming and thoughts about rising up the career ladder began to drive a wedge between o these calls.
Someone Great is a movie about love. Love in the purest sense, the kind that steams from friendship. Jenny’s (Gina Rodriguez) friends will go the extra mile to ensure she survived a very nasty breakup, and that’s exactly how friendship should be. It’s this very simple thing that makes me love this movie greatly.
