The List | Melissa Miller Constanzo on Crafting a Good RomCom, Nick Viall and Oscar Isaac

Christian Navarro and Halston Sage in The List

In every relationship, or rather their fantasy, many couples have their list of celebrities they would cheat on their significant others given the opportunity. The romantic comedy The List pokes fun with that idea as one woman pursues her celebrity list after her significant other cheated on her.

This funny romcom stars Halston Sage (Paper Towns, Before I Fall), Christian Navarro (13 Reasons Why, Vinyl), and Chrissie Fit (Pitch Perfect 2, Teen Beach Movie). Melissa Miller Constanzo directed the movie from the screenplay of Rob Lederer and Steve Vitolo.

Here is the full synopsis of The List:

Abby (Sage) is about to get married and everything is perfect. Until she finds out her fiancé slept with a celebrity from his “free pass” list. To get her mind off things, Abby and her best friend Chloe (Fit) come up with a crazy idea—Abby should pursue a celebrity from her own list, which includes tough guy action movie star Mac West, Sexiest Man Alive Cooper Grant, and multi-platinum Grammy award-winning rapper Avon. In Los Angeles, their friend Sam, a Hollywood talent agent and Chloe’s ex, calls in all the favors to help Abby get into the same room as her celebrity crushes. But getting their attention will be up to Abby. Just as she starts to get close to living the ultimate dream in La La Land, things become complicated when Abby meets Jake (Navarro), a local waiter with big dreams of his own, who gives her a fresh perspective.
