  • Despite remaining friends, stand-up comedian Zadie is "extremely single" ever since her breakup with Bradford. When she invites him to her mother's bed and breakfast for the weekend, Bradford invites his girlfriend. What begins as a fun weekend getaway quickly becomes riddled with baggage, jealousy and desire. Tension between the guests build as secrets are revealed. SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE alumna Sasheer Zamata delivers a sharp, complex performance as Zadie and leads a charming ensemble cast in this fresh romantic comedy directed by Stella Meghie. – Sarah Harris
