Is it possible to marry your best friend, divorce, and stay friends? If Celeste and Jesse Forever were a real-life story, then it proves that it’s the most complex of situations. However, it shows that it’s also believable. Co-writers and co-stars Rashida Jones and Will McCormack have been there in a way: The two dated for a few weeks in the late 90s, but felt that they were better suited to be friends more than lovers. Jones and McCormack’s shared history inspired their first screenplay (as individuals and as collaborators). The film is already being lumped in the romantic comedy genre, but the fact that it focuses more on the heartbreak side gives it the realistic edge and makes it a difference-maker in the field.
