Long Shot

Unlikely but not impossible.


Long Shot
In some ways a twist on Notting Hill, we follow a talented but bumbling journalist, who happens to reconnect with the woman who used to babysit him as a child. She’s now a powerful diplomat about to run for President, and she impulsively hires him as her speech-writer. He is completely out of his depth in her social circles, and his boyhood crush on her is still lingering, which eventually leads to sparks flying as they engage in an around-the-world romance.

123 minutes.
No persons under 16 (Language, Sex, Prejudice, Drug abuse).

Tomatometer quote iconA sharp and deceptively layered comedy that’s further fueled by the odd couple chemistry of its leads, this Long Shot largely hits its marks.
