Winnipeg Free Press - ONLINE EDITION
Confused fiancé Noah meets Ava after both become stranded in a big city airport for the night. He’s on his way to his wedding in Madrid; she’s embarking on a trip planned with her late husband Jack before his tragic death a year before.
Through sharing stories of love and loss — not to mention copious greasy fast food — they come to new understanding about their life choices. For the most part, Toronto playwright Kelly Aija Zemnickis’ script flows seamlessly, especially effective flashback scenes with Jack, despite some unconvincing exposition and awkward dialogue.
It’s not clear why Noah would marry the hot-yoga-loving Jennifer. Some of Ava’s dialogue rings hollow. Still, anyone who’s ever experienced cold feet in the romance department will appreciate this likable slice of contemporary life.
