Alison Brie has been a charming presence on both Community and Mad Men over the years, but finally, it’s time for her to break out and cement herself in Hollywood. What better way to do that than by starring in a sex-filled rom-com?
Written and directed by Leslye Headland (About Last Night), Sleeping with Other People stars Alison Brie and Jason Sudeikis (SNL, Horrible Bosses 2), two sex addicts who’ve reunited years after their first encounter. As they both face similar problems, the duo decide to keep their relationship platonic despite the intense attraction they feel towards one another. As is often the case, shenanigans and antics arise that will test just how strong their will is.
Sleeping with Other People premiered at Sundance earlier this year, and while I didn’t get a chance to catch the film due to scheduling conflicts, it’s been on my radar since. Hopefully, general audiences will keep it on theirs when the film hits theaters on September 11th.
