The recently released rom-com is one of Netflix’s best new movies of the year. Someone Great is a charming film about growing up and the power of female friendships. It also features a popular cast of young stars. The movie also serves as Jennifer Kaytin Robinson’s directorial debut. She previously created the MTV series, Sweet/Vicious.

The movie follows Jenny (Rodriguez), a music journalist who has just been dumped by her long-term boyfriend (Stanfield). To make herself feel better, she enlists the help of her two best friends–Blair (Snow) and Erin (Wise)–to go on a wild New York City adventure. Jenny must find a way out of her depression before she moves to San Francisco for her new job. But she must also come to terms with moving far away from her closest friends.

Even though the movie deals with important life lessons, there are some very funny moments along the way. The chemistry between the three leads is extremely noticeable which is why it has been such a hit to viewers.
