Summary: In the 1930s, Bobby (Jesse Eisenberg) leaves New York with his sights set on Hollywood and soon falls for Veronica (Kristen Stewart), his uncle’s mistress.
In the romantic comedy, Lively played Bobby’s wife, Veronica.
Although some critics faulted the film for being predictable, it largely garnered positive reviews.
“If you must stick to a formula, there are worse ones to follow,” James Luxford wrote for City AM. “Even in this low gear, the points about relationships are as salient as ever, helped along by Eisenberg in restrained and likable form.”
