The Coolidge is thrilled to be one of nine movie theaters nationwide selected to be part of Sundance Film Festival USA. On Thursday, January 26 at 7:30pm, director Lee Toland Krieger will be here with his film Celeste and Jesse Forever.

Celeste and Jesse met in high school and got married young. They laugh at the same jokes and finish each other’s sentences. They are forever linked in their friends’ minds as the perfect couple - she, a high-powered businesswomen and budding novelist; he a free spirit who keeps things from getting boring. Their only problem is that they have decided to get divorced. Can their perfect relationship withstand this minor setback?

Lee Toland Krieger finds the perfect tone to tell a story that is at first familiar but then transitions into something quite unique and authentic. Rashida Jones and Will McCormack have crafted a witty script filled with the insight needed to make Celeste and Jesse fulfill the definition of complicated souls seeking same. Jones also stars opposite Andy Samberg, and together they create palpable chemistry, eccentric dialogue, and infectious humor. Celeste and Jesse Forever is a delightful romp that examines the inner workings of marriage and its evolving place in modern life.
