Two would-be lovers, kept apart by distance--can technology bring them together?
A romantic comedy for the digital age, Eric Coble's For Better asks the eternal question for our times: Do the bride and groom really need to be in the same country to go on a honeymoon?
Karen and Max are getting married. That is if their nomadic jobs ever let them be in the same city at the same time.
But between them and wedded bliss are a blizzard of intercepted phone calls, erotic emails, online bridal gown shopping, and lost cell signals. Complicating matters are Karen's friends and family, who have mixed feelings about her marriage to a man they have never met.
Can love conquer all? Can you hear me now? Wait, someone is calling in. For Better celebrates the strength of love, family, and friendship in the face of those things that distance us.
“Coble has a knack for capturing our cultural zeitgeist… It’s all ridiculously fun” — Akron Beacon Journal
For Better contains some adult language.
