Here’s the synopsis for Save the Date:
In the Michael Mohan-directed film, fiercely independent Sarah (Caplan) breaks up with her overeager boyfriend Kevin (Arend) and finds herself caught-up in an intense rebound relationship with new infatuation Jonathan (Webber). Always one to give life advice is Sarah’s sister Beth (Brie), who is diligently planning her upcoming wedding to apprehensive fiancé – and Kevin’s band mate – Andrew (Starr). With heart and humor, all five struggle with the trials, happiness, and pain of modern love. Simple and honest and always human, “Save the Date” is a contemporary story about the familial and romantic bonds that make us who we are.
