NEW TRAILER: Samberg & Jones in Celeste and Jesse Forever

Written by Alexander Tucker   // 06/21/2012

Celeste and Jesse ForeverAndy Samberg has been lighting up Facebook and Twitter over the past month. He left SNL, had a few shitty things to say about the direction of the show, he co-starred in That’s My Boy, which Bombed, and he was cast in a new show at BBC.

 

Now, the trailer for his new movie has landed. The film is called, ‘Celeste and Jesse Forever.’ It’s about a divorcing couple trying to maintain their friendship while they both pursue other people. We’ve all been there. Most of us. Some of us. Anyway the film also stars Rashida Jones, The Office beauty and daughter of Quincy Jones. Also co-starring, Elijah Wood and Emma Roberts. All in all, an amiable cast of cool actors.

 

The film was actually written by Rashida Jones. Her and Will McCormack wrote the screenplay and Lee Toland Kriegar Directed. (Whats with the three names?) Any-who, Celeste and Jesse Forever was a Sundance favorite. It got very positive reviews. Nothing special, but it’s considered a very enjoyable movie. I’ll defiantly take the time to hit the local indie theater and see it August 3rd, when it comes out.

 

Here’s the synopsis: Celeste (Rashida Jones) and Jesse (Andy Samberg) met in high school, married young and are growing apart. Now thirty, Celeste is the driven owner of her own media consulting firm, Jesse is once again unemployed and in no particular rush to do anything with his life. Celeste is convinced that divorcing Jesse is the right thing to do — she is on her way up, he is on his way nowhere, and if they do it now instead of later, they can remain supportive friends. Jesse passively accepts this transition into friendship, even though he is still in love with her. As the reality of their separation sets in, Celeste slowly and painfully realizes she has been cavalier about their relationship, and her decision, which once seemed mature and progressive, now seems impulsive and selfish. But her timing with Jesse is less than fortuitous. While navigating the turbulent changes in their lives and in their hearts, these two learn that in order to truly love someone, you may have to let them go. The film is a humorous and honest examination of a broken heart and the long, hard road it takes to heal it.
