About Fate poster


December 26, 2022


A proper rom-com, with a stronger focus on the romantic elements. The title already hints at the strong influence of fate in the plot (in other words, there are some pretty farfetched coincidences that drive the narrative). Keeping the genre in mind though, that's nothing to get too worked up about.

Margot and Griffin are two romantic souls who have a surprising amount of things in common. Fate brings them together when Griffin ends up in Margot's house after a day out with his friends. Margot convinces him to be her +1 to a wedding as her current boyfriend dumped her the night before. That's when things get truly complicated.

Roberts and Mann are solid, the winter holiday setting is perfect and there are a few cute details that make the story a bit more interesting, even though you don't need to expect any big surprises. About Fate isn't a very remarkable film, but it's perfectly executed filler that is sure to please fans of the genre.
