photo: In a Relationship
Dakota Johnson was not always just Fifty Shades of Grey. Thank God. A short movie called In a Relationship proves that Melanie Griffith daughter really can act.
Shot mockumentary style, this short follows two young couples in opposite stages of romance: Matt and Willa, who have been hooking up for six days, and Owen and Abby, who are trying in vain to breathe new life into a five-year relationship that is growing stale. It’s an exploration of the grey areas of contemporary dating and how much we keep from the people we’re closest to.
In a Relationship is inspired by Woody Allen’s classic Husbands and Wives and it’s all but a rom-com. After watching you can feel so desperate that you will delete Tinder forever.
