Fresh (2022)

Hello, hello!
Today we’re taking a closer look at a movie I hardly wait for to be released: Fresh. From the first moment that this was announced I was excited. Let’s see if it was worth the wait…

The Plot (according to RT):

FRESH follows Noa (Daisy Edgar-Jones), who meets the alluring Steve (Sebastian Stan) at a grocery store and — given her frustration with dating apps — takes a chance and gives him her number. After their first date, Noa is smitten and accepts Steve’s invitation to a romantic weekend getaway. Only to find that her new paramour has been hiding some unusual appetites.

The Rating:

We start out with a shitty date – let’s just pretend that twat didn’t happen, followed by a meet-cute. This was probably one of my favorite scenes like that I’ve ever seen, as were their interactions after that. Both characters were the perfect amount of weird and awkward, it felt realistic yet charming. Could ever rom-com ever please take notes? Thank you.
