They say that breaking-up can be hard to do and from the looks of the new film Peter and Vandy, it can also be excruciating. Everyone can relate to it, it happens to the best of us, but in this non-linear movie the filmmakers take an in-depth and critical look at the beginning, middle and end of a relationship. We had a chance to speak exclusively with the stars of Peter and Vandy, Jason Ritter and Jess Weixler, which opens on October 9th in limited release.

Peter and Vandy is a love story told out of order. Set in Manhattan, the story shifts back and forth in time, juxtaposing Peter and Vandy's romantic beginnings with the twisted, manipulative, regular couple they become. The film explores the question most couples ask themselves, "How the hell did we get here?" They begin with the hope of new love on the horizon, adoring the little quirks about each other. But as they continue, the way they bicker while trying to order takeout, and begin to criticize the smallest of gestures, reveals more about them than "couples therapy" ever could. Through these iconic moments, we see just who they are... And it's familiar. By going back and forth in time, we are able to pinpoint the subtle causes that lead to the larger effects within their relationship. Also starring Jesse L. Martin, Tracie Thoms and Noah Bean and directed by Jay DiPietro, Peter and Vandy opens in limited release on October 9th.
