Today’s best bet, based on the new adds to the Netflix instant watch library for April 8, is Luke and Brie Are on a First Date.
I have been waiting for this mumblecore flick to come on streaming for a long while. We shall see if it is worth the wait.
On a first date, Luke (George Ducker) and Brie (Meghan Webster) seem nervous and awkward as they meet at a Los Angeles bar and then move on to a party. As the night goes on, Luke tries to keep Brie’s attention from wandering to a host of characters while they get to know each other. Meanwhile, the two navigate the subtle tensions of their budding connection. Stars Ducker and Webster co-wrote this indie drama with director Chad Hartigan.
