Here’s what the distributor says about their film: “New York City is full of lonely hearts seeking the right match, and what Alice, Robin, Lucy, Meg, Tom and David all have in common is the need to learn how to be single in a world filled with ever-evolving definitions of love. This film explores the dating lives of five single New York women, one of whom, Julie, is writing a book about how bachelorettes across the world manage. Julie embarks on a trip around the world for the book and gets involved in an international affair, while her four friends duke it out on the New York dating scene.
based on the 2008 novel by Liz Tuccillo”
