    Mohan's film may not manage anything out of the ordinary, but it does present a convincingly contemporary depiction of relationships and dating when the goalposts have been moved, or when we're at least trying to pretend they have.

    Save the Date works best when it's getting under your skin, and it does that when it's capturing the queasy halfway point - part sadistic, part bittersweet - of still loving somebody while trying to move on to someone new. It's a kind of subtlety that movies, especially American movies, rarely do well, but this quietly unassuming, secretly brilliant little charmer nails it.

    Sarah spends her downtime drawing her friends and family in her sketchbook - the art is by Brown - and the figures she makes are not stylized or caricatured but just well-observed, scruffier versions of real life. It's fitting that those same drawings adorn the opening and closing credits of this sweet and sympathetic movie.

    Save The Date's achievements are modest - it could be funnier and more affecting, and it ends with a shrug - but the film is wise about sibling relationships, the uncertainty of youth, and smaller matters, like the way people relate to each other after a break-up.

    A slim but likeable little romantic comedy that feels like a sweeter cousin of HBO's Girls.
