The quote: "This light romance comedy successfully reinvents 'the movie' with its fresh approach and fluid narrative, bolstered by a directorial style that is fresh and clean."
2. It's story knows no (generational) bounds.
The quote: "While it (is)...intended for millennials, it ('Vince and Kath and James') should appeal to all generations."
Based on what we know of the movie so far, we know that despite it's innovations in narrative, it is, in it's core, a classic love story.
Speaking of love...

Also in the cast is Ronnie Alonte, a Hashtags member who has proved his talent in performing, and of course, the stellar Maris Racal.
