I GIVE IT A YEAR
I GIVE IT A YEAR is the hilarious new comedy from Working Title Films and the writer of Borat.
Starting where other romantic comedies finish, I GIVE IT A YEAR lifts the veil on the realities of the first year of marriage and stars Rose Byrne (Bridesmaids), Rafe Spall (One Day), Anna Faris (The Dictator) Simon Baker (The Mentalist) and Stephen Merchant (The Office).
Since they met at a party, ambitious high-flyer Nat (Byrne) and struggling novelist Josh (Spall) have been deliriously happy despite their differences. Josh is a thinker, Nat’s a doer..but the spark between them is undeniable.
Their wedding is a dream come true, but family, friends and even the minister who marries them aren’t convinced that they can last. Josh’s ex-girlfriend, Chloe (Faris), and Nat’s handsome American client Guy (Baker), could offer attractive alternatives.
With their first anniversary approaching, neither wants to be the first to give up, but will they make it?
I GIVE IT A YEAR is released in cinemas nationwide on 8th February.
