People often ponder during every stage of their life if and when they’re supposed to be doing the same as everyone around them. One major consideration young adults often face is whether they should follow in their friends and peers’ footsteps, and get married. That contemplation is a powerful motivator for the two main protagonists in this summer’s romantic comedy-drama, ‘Plus One.’
The movie marks the feature film directorial debuts of Jeff Chan and Andrew Rhymer, who also co-wrote and produced the project together. RLJE Films is set to unveil ‘Plus One’ on Blu-ray and DVD on August 6, following the comedy-drama’s theatrical, Digital and VOD distribution last month. The official release also comes after the movie had its World Premiere in the Spotlight Narrative section of this spring’s Tribeca Film Festival, where it won the Audience Award and the Best Narrative Feature Award.

‘Plus One’ is set during wedding season, a dreaded and beloved part of adult life. During a hectic summer that amounts to roughly one wedding per weekend, two jaded college buddies, Ben and Alice (Jack Quaid and Maya Erskine), make a pact to survive the onslaught together. As they craft, deliver and sit through cringe-inducing toast after toast to legions of newly married friends and family, including Ben’s dad, Chuck (Ed Begley Jr.), they shuttle through singles tables in search of fellow lonelyhearts, or at least temporary distractions.
In addition to Quaid, Erskine and Begley Jr., the movie also stars Beck Bennett (‘Saturday Night Live’), Rosalind Chao (‘Mulan’), Brianne Howey (‘The Passage’), Jon Bass (‘Miracle Workers’) and Finn Wittrock (‘American Horror Story‘). RLJE Films will release ‘Plus One’ on DVD for an SRP of $27.97 and Blu-ray for an SRP of $28.97. The Blu-ray and DVD will include the following bonus features: deleted scenes and extended scenes.
