Why you should be excited: Save The Date can really be sold in only seven words: Lizzy Caplan and Alison Brie play sisters. Boom, done. Sign us up. Why, you ask? Clearly you’ve never watched an episode of NBC’s Community (with Brie), and you were one of the many folks who slept on the Starz Network’s short-lived comedy series Party Down.
That’s OK, though, because, if the reviews from Sundance are any indication, Save The Date is on its way to indie breakthrough status, and, if the stars all align, Caplan and Brie, two of the sexiest and most underrated comediennes in the business, could finally get the widespread respect they deserve. The same goes for Martin Starr, Caplan’s fellow Party Down cast member who’s said to be a revelation here, as Brie’s loving rocker husband.
