Everyone is love-crazed in this delightfully quick-witted romantic comedy, Puccini For Beginners, which features an all-star cast including Elizabeth Reaser (The Twilight Saga), Gretchen Moll (Rounders) and Justin Kirk (Weeds).
Allegra Castiglone: our dashing, adorable heroine, is by far the most commitment phobic person. Her lesbian lover dumped her because she couldn’t settle down and say, “I love you.” Just as she’s drowning her sorrows in a giant slice of Camembert, in walks Phillip, a dapper Columbia University Professor who, against her better judgment, lights her fire. Kicking and screaming, she launches into an affair with heaven forbid- a man! Meanwhile, she also falls into bed with the irresistibly gorgeous Grace, a recently single, straight woman, of all things. While juggling two romances that are advancing way too quickly for comfort, Allegra lands in hot water that boils over into an explosive, cathartic climax for all.n
