Critic Reviews for The New Romantic
The New Romantic follows a very familiar arc, but the path is certainly a pleasant one, thanks to Barden's naturally ebullient performance.
A somewhat palatable quasi-rom-com that declares the death of contemporary romance from the get-go, only to try and resurrect it later.
Mirroring its green protagonist, "The New Romantic" presents an image of sophistication while playing with ideas that are out of its depth.
The waif-like Barden is splendid in the central role, using her expressive eyes in the subtlest of ways to convey emotions.
Setting the bar for the film impossibly high with repetitious references to Nora Ephron classics like Sleepless in Seattle, Stone shows she's got spirit, but maybe not the best judgment, much like her protagonist.
