Going the Distance (27-Aug-2010)

Director: Nanette Burstein

Writer: Geoff LaTulippe

Music by: Mychael Danna

Producers: Adam Shankman; Jennifer Gibgot; Garrett Grant

Keywords: Romantic Comedy

Two love-struck young adults work to keep their romance alive when physical distance becomes a part of their equation.

Erin, a thirty-one-year old Stanford graduate student and intern at a New York City newspaper, strikes up a casual flame with area man Garrett six weeks before she is slated to return home to California. When their connection quickly blossoms into a romance incapable of being dropped quite as easily as it was picked up, however, the love-struck couple must find a way to sustain their passion in the face of looming distance-based barriers as their friends and family seem intent on proclaiming their relationship untenable.
