IFC Films is releasing a new romantic comedy just in time for Valentine’s Day this year.  A Case of You, starring Justin Long (She’s Just Not That Into You, Live Free or Die Hard, Going The Distance), Brendan Fraser (George of the Jungle, Airheads, Dudley Do-Right), Evan Rachel Wood (Across The Universe, The Ides of March, Mildred Pierce) and Peter Dinklage (Game of Thrones), is a story set in the age of digital dating.  When writer Sam (Justin Long) creates an overly embellished online dating profile to win over his love interest Birdie (Evan Rachel Wood), it works a little too well.  The result is that Sam must make a choice between telling Birdie the truth about himself or trying to maintain his façade.  Veteran actor Vince Vaughan (Wedding Crashers, The Intern, Anchorman) makes an appearance, too. He plays Sam’s boss Alan.

A Case of You will entertain any of today’s audiences because of its believability.  It explores the sometimes laughable lengths to which we as people will go for love.  Also signed on for the new rom-com are :  Sam Rockwell, Sienna Miller, Peter Billingsley, Busy Philipps, and Keir O’Donnell.  O’Donnel was one of the movie’s writers along with Justin Long and his brother Christian Long.  It is long’s first movie as a writer and producer.  Kait Coiro (And While We Were Here) directed the movie.  It will be available on DVD and Blu-ray on Tuesday, February 4th from IFC Films for MSRPs of $24.98 and $29.98 respectively.
