Directed by Wanuri Kahiu, Netflix’s ‘Look Both Ways’ (originally titled ‘Plus/Minus’) is a romantic comedy movie that follows a young woman named Natalie. Her life takes a surreal turn on her college graduation eve when her life diverges into two parallel and separate realities. One of them includes her becoming pregnant and exploring motherhood as a young adult in her hometown, while in the other one, she leaves her past behind to move to a new city, looking for new opportunities and pursuing her career.
Although they are two separate realities, in both of them, Natalie goes through some life-altering experiences, pursues her dream career, and finds herself. The unique and interesting premise of the Netflix romance is made all the more entertaining by the brilliant performances from a talented ensemble cast comprising Lili Reinhart, Danny Ramirez, Aisha Dee, and David Corenswet. Moreover, the two locations portraying two different scenarios in Natalie’s life will likely boggle your mind. In that case, you might be interested in what we have to share about the same!
