Cast: Lili Reinhart, Danny Ramirez, David Corenswet, Aisha DeeAndrea Savage, Luke Wilson, Nia Long.

Directed by: Wanuri Kahiu

Genre: Romance, Drama, Comedy

Rating: 8/10

On the eve of her college graduation, Natalie’s life diverges into parallel realities: one in which she becomes pregnant and remains in her hometown to raise her child, and another in which she moves to LA to pursue her dream career.

Thumbs up:

The second half of the movie is the better part of the film. Lili delivered her acts well overall. Her face is expressive which helped this film.

‘Look both ways’ is similar to ‘Sliding Doors’, starring Gwyneth Paltrow. ‘Sliding Doors’ had much more depth and character development though, although both will likely make you cry.

This movie really makes you think about the choices we make and if you just don’t give up on yourself you’re going to be okay and end up where you are meant to be.

Thumbs down:

It was a sad watchable movie, but hard to follow at times. They tried something new but you got lost if you just looked away once. 

Unfortunately, this script does not allow for much character growth, and the audience didn’t get the opportunity to get sucked into either of the stories. The whole movie felt like you were waiting for something to happen that never did.

Verdict:

A movie about choices and consequences and is worth watching this weekend.
