A Solid Dramedy which deserves your attention

I feel like this movie is getting a lot of unwanted hate with regards to its execution and ending and I feel the criticism is somewhat harsh.

Anchored by two commanding performances, together together is about two lonely individuals finding solace in each others company when Anna played by Patti Harrison acts as a surrogate for Ed helm's Matt.

Over the course of 90 mins we see them developing a sweet platonic bond which is equal parts honest and awkward.

With some powerful takes on relationships, parenting and friendships this movie reminds us of the unexpected turns life's journey can take and the comfort one can find in the most unexpected of places.

A Very Mediocre Production Without an Ending

In spite of attempting to poorly imitate the lettering and typeface of Woody Allen cinematography, found the negative references to Woody Allen and his Oscar winning productions - Annie Hall and Manhattan to be both unnecessary and in poor taste. Unlike the creators of Together, Together , Woody Allen clearly knows how to make a movie.

The acting in this movie and both leads were very good. Unfortunately the writing and story line fell flat, and the expectation that today's audience would bat an eye at a 25 year old woman having a child with a 45 year old man seems out of touch with reality and today's world. With different filmmakers this could have been an interesting production.

The lack of an ending was also a great disappointment.

Worth a watch

I was able to see this at Sundance Festival 2021's virtual screening.

"Together Together" is about how Matt, a single, middle-aged tech worker in Northern California hires Anna, who is in her twenties, as a surrogate mother to his child. As their relationship progresses and Anna gets closer to delivering their baby, they grow more emotionally dependent on each other. The film examines the boundaries between their relationship, not only as a surrogate mother to the baby's father, but also as they become friends.

This is the kind of movie people often refer to as "cute." It's certainly not a groundbreaking effort that will change your life, but it will provoke some laughs and maybe even cause you to get teary-eyed in a couple of scenes. I thought the film's opening scene with both characters nervously interviewing each other was very funny. Anna's continues to revise her answers to Matt's questions as he scribbles them into a notebook, and he does his best to accommodate her by crossing out many of her responses as she asks him to.

I found Ms. Harrison to be very believable in her role. Her performance turns the role of Anna into someone very real and vulnerable; there's an innocence about her, but also a loneliness, something we learn she and Matt have in common as the film progresses. Ed Helms is also effective in his role, but he plays the role very much like, well, Ed Helms. Except for a scene at the end of the film, the part doesn't really require him to step very far out of his comfort zone. Julio Torres is also very funny as Anna's zoned-out co-worker, as well as Tig Notaro's brief role as a therapist and Sufe Bradshaw as a hospital technician.

"Together Together" won't win any big awards, but I recommend it for what it is: a gentle comedy about the importance of non-romantic relationships, a theme that should be explored more often. The plot is often predictable, but, let's face it, isn't that typical of films like this?

A sidenote: Curiously, this feature was presented as one of Sundance 2021's gay-themed films. The character of Matt is a single, middle-aged man living in San Francisco. During his two or three discussions with Anna when she asks him about his his past relationships, he seems to be deliberately explaining things in a vague way, intentionally leaving out genders. His character clearly struck me as a closeted gay man and I expected an eventual reveal as the film continued. It didn't happen. Instead, the director stated during the Q&A that she had written the part of Matt to be heterosexual. I was left feeling confused why he was written to be so deliberately coy and avoidant when mentioning genders in his past relationships if he was straight. I'm assuming this was categorized as a "gay themed film" due to Ms. Harrison's participation, but she's playing a straight, cisgender woman in her role.
