It Had to Be You
Sonia is a neurotic jingle writer who’s always dreamt of a big and exciting life. Surprised by a sudden proposal and subsequent ultimatum from her easy-going boyfriend, Chris, Sonia has to decide whether she’ll join the ranks of her married friends or take a leap and pursue her fantasies. A whimsical romantic comedy that’s raunchy and yet gentle, IT HAD TO BE YOU explores the choices women face today while satirizing cultural expectations of gender and romance. Starring Cristin Milioti (Fargo Wolf of Wall Street) and Dan Soder (Billions, Inside Amy Schumer). Executive produced by Chris Columbus (The Goonies, Harry Potter, The Help).
I am a producer and share story credit on the film, which was released theatrically by Samuel Goldwyn in 2016. I collaborated on the script with my longtime friend and former classmate, Sasha Gordon, the writer/director.
"A memorable romantic comedy that stands to bring back the genre's good name... as funny, endearing and enjoyably off-kilter as its adorable star, Cristin Milioti." -- LA Times
"Milioti shines in this clever, unconventional rom-com." -- Hollywood Reporter
