Plus One: A Wedding Season Rom-Com

What makes Plus One so charming and enjoyable as a romantic comedy is the strength of the chemistry between leading actors Maya Erskine and Jack Quaid. Alice (Maya Erskine) and Ben (Jack Quaid) have been friends for several years.  Alice is recovering from a breakup with Nate (Tim Chiou) as the film begins.  Meanwhile, Ben is preparing his Best Man’s speech for Matt (Beck Bennett) and Amanda’s (Jessy Hodges) upcoming wedding.  Neither of them know…
