Overview

Peter and Vandy

One couple's stormy relationship is examined out of chronological order in this drama written and directed by Jay DiPietro, adapted from his play. Peter (Jason Ritter) and Vandy (Jess Weixler) meet when both are college students; they fall in love and live together for a while, but on a certain fundamental level they're never fully comfortable with one another, and eventually they go their separate ways. But rather than tell their story from beginning to end, Peter and Vandy jumps back and forth in time, with the couple midway through their romance before we've seen their first date. DiPietro allows us to see how the flaws in their relationship -- Peter's discomfort around Vandy and their habit of bickering about petty things -- were present at the beginning, lurking around the corner even in their happiest moments. Peter and Vandy received its world premiere at the 2009 Sundance Film Festival.

Jay DiPietro's Peter & Vandy is an unconventional, non-linear love story. When I first saw it, it was impossible not to make comparisons to 500 Days of Summer. Peter and Vandy is MUCH better. Where 500 Days is comedy, Peter and Vandy is a drama that moves quickly and is dominated by great performances by both Jason Ritter & Jess Weixler. Peter and Vandy is based upon a play and does not a constant soundtrack of songs throughout it. Instead it features the history of a young couple including their jaded parents, and small arguements. I found the acting and writing profound. It is a film that leaves you thinking about what is an "ideal" relationship. I highly recommend it.
