Here is an adorable romantic comedy that’s bathed in today’s culture (and tunes). Forlorn Nick is hopelessly in love with his ex, sending her 12 installments of his Road to Closure mix CD series. Hilarious lines include his declaration to his gay friends: “You guys don’t know what it’s like to be straight – it’s awful!” The vomit/toilet/gum/cellphone scene by drunk Caroline is memorable in its depth of grossness. Norah and Nick bond over rad indie rock. [Sony Pictures] DV
