What is refreshing about The Other Zoey is that this time, instead of the male lead being the cynic, it is the film’s female protagonist who is an ultra-rational coder with no time for rom-coms.
The Other Zoey wears its clichés with pride. hen we first meet the protagonist of The Other Zoey, she is emphatically tearing down the concept of love and romance in her university classroom.
True to the tradition of rom-coms, much of this last chapter sees Zoey moping and learning to open up to the world and its possibilities.
For a film that started out with the threat of a female lead who is “not like other girls” just because she doesn’t believe in love, Director Sara Zandieh and writer Matthew Tabak come across as true fans of the rom-com genre
