For Valentine’s Day, there’s an anti-romantic way on approaching love.

The indie movie Toss It is about two savvy adults discovering what they don’t know about themselves, in a subversive movie that starts where most romcoms end–tossing tropes, dismantling genres and asking deep questions in a funny, beautiful, unexpected story.

The film is written by Michele Remsen (Juke) and will make its premiere at the Hollywood Reel Independent Film Festival at the LA Live Regal Cinemas on Sunday, February 25.

It stars Phil Burke (This is Forty), Michele Remsen (Juke), Blair Ross (Stranger in the House), Stephen Bogardus (Julie & Julia), Allison Fresca (The Murders of Cane Hill), Eric Goss (Kurbaan), Jenny Zerke (BloodBath), and Malachi McCourt (The Devil’s Own).

Here’s the synopsis:

Opening on the last two bitter singles at a wedding — smart-skeptical Emily and obsessive-compulsive-flirt Finn — (latter-day Rosalind Russel and Cary Grant types) who can witty-banter-for-days and seem a perfect match — then everything gets tossed. Finn wonders why he’s so fucked up, and Emily wonders why she’s so drawn to him. A younger couple, sophisticated parents, a wise great-uncle, and a flaky friend impact both, driving them apart until they take a leap. Then a major curve-ball hits, the curtain gets pulled-back on dearly-held traditions and reveals what made them who they are. Discovering the real-deal goes down in back-hallways, Finn and Emily kick against convention to find some kind of truth of their own.
