Manhattan Romance
16 October 2015 | by nikkizehrenSee all my reviews

Manhattan Romance is the film I've been waiting for, finally a realistic portrayal of bisexual relationships in mainstream media. I was intrigued by the way each character was struggling with a different aspect of what it means to fall in love! This movie does a great job of demonstrating the different views people have when starting a relationship and that's why it stuck with me! Tom O'Brien who wrote, and directed, the film did a superb job crafting this script. The film, which is about a modern day love triangle set in New York City, had lines that I would find myself saying on a daily basis. The fact that a writer can be so vulnerable is a true testament to his work. I found myself thoroughly intrigued with this film, can't wait to see it again.
