Storyline

Justin Long and Emmy Rossum are star-crossed lovers whose relationship blooms and unravels over the course of six years in this mysterious, dazzlingly original romance. When a chance encounter brings together the cynical Dell (Long) and the quick-witted Kimberly (Rossum), the stage is set for a tempestuous love affair that unfolds like a puzzle. As the film zigzags back and forth in time-from a meteor shower in LA, to an encounter in a Paris hotel room, to a fateful phone call-an unforgettable portrait of a relationship emerges. Sumptuously shot and boasting incredible chemistry between the leads, Comet is a one-of-a-kind cosmic love story. Written by IFC Films

User Reviews

 
You can't just read reviews, this film is a must see

While it could have been another love story about unrealistic people and irrational infatuation, Comet manages to hold to the indie film spirit. Which makes it, perhaps impractically, immensely easy to enjoy. Long plays insufferable in a way that still allows him to seem charming, and he definitely carries the majority of the chemistry between himself and Rossum. Rossum keeps up with the banter well enough. If she could have conveyed some sort of inner wisdom, it would have worked in her favor, but she seems to delight in her character's insensibility and takes for granted that Kimberly is simply wanted.

Perhaps love doesn't follow rules, so if Sam Esmail wants to dream up new ones in a world of his imagination, he's just clever enough to make it interesting, if not remarkable.
