On the twelfth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me… one catfish?! Finding love can be… well… hard, but for Natalie, it seems as though her down on her luck days with love are just a thing of the past when she comes across her ideal guy on a dating app. After a good ‘ol swipe right, let’s just say that things don’t turn out the way Natalie plans when she learns that the person behind her dream guy’s dating profile isn’t at all who she thinks he is.
It’s time to ring in the holidays with Netflix’s festive and joyous, new film, Love Hard releasing on Nov. 5 on the streaming platform. Love Hard follows “hopeless romantic, but eternally single, LA journalist Natalie (Nina Dobrev), who thinks things are beginning to look up when she swipes right on a dreamy guy from the East Coast, Tag (Darren Barnet). Taking a leap of faith she jumps on a flight to surprise her crush for the holidays, only to discover that she’s been catfished by Tag’s childhood friend who is equally unlucky in love, Josh (Jimmy O. Yang). This lighthearted romantic comedy chronicles her attempt to reel in love” (source: press release).
The remarkable rom-com stars the aforementioned Dobrev, Barnet, and Yang, along with James Saito, Harry Shum Jr., Mikaela Hoover, Heather McMahan, Althea Kaye, Rebecca Staab, Matty Finochio and Fletcher Donovan.
Great comedy, a feel-good story, and an absolutely extraordinary cast to bring all of the holiday cheer to life – needless to say, Love Hard is the perfect movie to welcome in the most wonderful time of the year.
