Preview, Young Love in the “Sugar Baby” era — “The New Romantic”

Jessica Barden writes a “sex column with no sex,” a hopeless romantic nostalgic for “romantic comedies of the ’90s” (Seriously?), picky, about to be unemployed.

Then she discovers the Sugardaddy/Sugarbaby phenomenon — a re-branding for the #MeToo era of young woman who let themselves be “kept” by well-off older men.

Eww. And yeah, it happens. Read what’s left of the classifieds of any surviving alt-weekly.

Carly Stone, a writer for TV’s “Kim’s Convenience,” co-wrote and directed this comedy about love in an age of “practicality.” “The New Romantic” is finishing it s circuit of film festivals and headed our way soon.
