The rom-com season is back in Hollywood. But there is always a downside to genres that attempt to re-enter the scene, as they are often not driven by popular demand but signal the beginning of changing trends. The year 2023 has seen an impressive lineup of heartwarming rom-coms like Rye Lane and Shortcomings. Unfortunately, like many others, they too go unnoticed and therefore remain underrated.

Adding to this list is another charming romantic comedy, ‘She Came to Me.’ The film stars Anne Hathaway, Marisa Tomei and the talented Peter Dinklage, best known for his role in Game of Thrones.

At its core, the film revolves around a struggling composer grappling with a creative block. Anne Hathaway as his wife and therapist, tries to bring the depressed composer back to his art, but he seems to have lost touch. However, suddenly, after five years, he finally finds inspiration through an accidental encounter with a female tugboat owner. While he secretly composes an opera based on what transpires between the two, the tugboat owner also happens to see the performance and begins to stalk him.

And that’s how the movie got its name, “She came to me.”

While romance takes center stage, “She Came to Me” also explores themes of family dynamics, societal class divides, teenage love, and the complexities of human desire. Through its diverse array of narratives, the film offers a nuanced portrayal of the human experience, inviting viewers to reflect on their own relationships and aspirations.

In essence, “She Came to Me” offers a delightful experience that effortlessly blends romance, comedy, and drama. With its engaging storyline and adoring characters, it promises to leave audiences with a smile and a warmer heart.
