The Broken Hearts Gallery

Check your hard feelings about cheesy romantic comedies at the door and just enjoy Natalie Krinsky’s first feature film, The Broken Hearts Gallery. The film follows Lucy (Geraldine Viswanathan), who after being dumped by her boyfriend Max (Utkarsh Ambudkar) and fired from her job as a gallery assistant, meets aspiring hotelier Nick (Dacre Montgomery). Lucy goes on to create an exhibit in his work-in-progress hotel where emotional hoarders like her can leave items from previous relationships––and their emotional attachments to them––behind. It’s refreshing to see a film with a woman of color as the lead without any plot points or dialogue revolving around her identity. And even when the film felt like it was pandering to a young audience with its pop culture references, the charming cast and the film’s gusto surely solidifies The Broken Hearts Gallery as the newest entry in the endless list of feel-good romantic comedies.
