I Give It A Year

From the writer of Borat and Bruno, and the producers of Love Actually

I GIVE IT A YEAR

Directed by Dan Mazer and starring Rafe Spall, Rose Byrne, Minnie Driver, Stephen Merchant, Simon Baker & Anna Faris

STUDIOCANAL are delighted to announce the Home Entertainment release of the UK Box office hit I GIVE IT A YEAR. From the Working Title stable, producers of acclaimed British comedy classics Love Actually and Four Weddings and a Funeral and fresh from giving cinema audiences the inside track on the first year of marriage, it arrives on DVD, blu-ray and EST with an exciting set of bonus material including deleted scenes, audio commentary, bloopers and out-takes and featurettes from the world premiere.

Opening where the standard romantic comedy finishes, I GIVE IT A YEAR introduces a new leading man in Rafe Spall (One Day) as Josh, a struggling novelist, as he marries ambitious, highly strung careerist Nat (Rose Byrne, Bridesmaids) after a whirlwind romance. The excited new couple seems deliriously in love despite their conflicting traits; Josh is a dreamer, Nat is a doer, but the sparks between them fly. So far so ‘happily ever after’. Except, despite the dream coming true, no one – neither family, friends nor even the minister marrying them – believes they can last, and the giddy couple exchange vows to the whispered refrain from the congregation of…”I give It a year..” As the honeymoon fades and they return to real life, they negotiate the pleasures-and more often pitfalls – of their first few months of marriage, and the question is never far away – have they made the right choice? A question soon personified in the form of Josh’s kooky ex girlfriend Chloe (Anna Faris, The Dictator), and Nat’s handsome new American client Guy (Simon Baker, The Mentalist) who maybe offer very attractive alternatives. With their first anniversary just around the corner, neither wants to be the first to give up, but will they make it?

I GIVE IT A YEAR is written and directed by Dan Mazer, in his directorial debut, who brings all the satirical humour he injected into irreverent comedies Bruno and Borat and audaciously turns the genre stereotypes on their heads, introducing a comic romance not about people getting together – but splitting up.
