FIRST LOOK: The Broken Hearts Gallery

Besides a drive-in screening that sold out in August, The Broken Hearts Gallery courtesy of Sony is one of the four horsemen of wide releases in movie theaters in September 2020.

A romcom with a curious premise focused on people that are “emotional hoarders.”

What if you saved a souvenir from every relationship you’ve ever been in? THE BROKEN HEARTS GALLERY follows the always unique Lucy (Geraldine Viswanathan), a 20-something art gallery assistant living in New York City, who also happens to be an emotional hoarder. After she gets dumped by her latest boyfriend, Lucy is inspired to create The Broken Heart Gallery, a pop-up space for the items love has left behind. Word of the gallery spreads, encouraging a movement and a fresh start for all the romantics out there, including Lucy herself.

Everything You Need to Know About The Broken Hearts Gallery Movie (2020)

The trailer:

As far as movies we enjoy together, romcoms are usually a safe bet for a date night with us, even if the movie is somewhat underwhelming. When you compare this to the other four movies: Tenet, a tentpole Christopher Nolan tech-fest that we just reserved tickets for IMAX screening later today, Greenland, a decent-looking disaster film featuring Gerard Butler and Infidel, a thriller with a largely unknown cast, the severe lack of competition might make the romcom stand out.

Not sure why so many people dump on romcoms. As long as there is good chemistry from the leads and a story that isn’t too much formula: boy meets girl, boy can’t have girl, boy fights to win girl, happily ever after — then, we’ll have a good time. Doesn’t mean we’ll recommend the movie or give it a great review, but we’ll get what we’re looking for.

What do you think of The Broken Hearts Gallery? Any interest in seeing it, whether it is in the theater or waiting the 90 days or so for it to hit the streaming circuit?

The Broken Hearts Gallery opens wide in theaters on September 11, 2020.
