'Juliet, Naked'

Annie (Rose Byrne) loves Duncan (Chris O'Dowd), not wisely but too well. He is obsessed with a once-popular singer-songwriter named Tucker Crowe (Ethan Hawke). Anne, it so happens, got to know the musician way back when, in a very biblical sense of the world. So when the troubadour happens to come back in to her life, guess who's freaking out with glee? And who in this relationship is just plain freaking out? Jesse Peretz – the man behind the Paul Rudd comedy Our Idiot Brother, too many wonderful TV episodes to count and that Foo Fighters' Mentos-flavored music video – sets up what sounds like a perfect scenario for a fanboyism-run-amuck cringe-dramedy. And who doesn't love those?
