Life Partners stars Leighton Meester (“Gossip Girl”), Gillian Jacobs (“Community”), Adam Brody (“The O.C.”) and Gabourey Sidibe (Precious). Available on iTunes and On Demand November 6th. In theatres December 5th.
Straight PAIGE (Gillian Jacobs) and lesbian SASHA (Leighton Meester) are codependent best friends in their late 20s who have spent the last ten years acting more like wives than friends. They talk to each other on the toilet. They drive each other to the doctor. And as with any good marriage, they’re a perfect yin and yang: Paige is a type-A environmental lawyer and fount of advice and moral support, while Sasha is an impulsive musician immersed in the hedonism of her local gay scene. Paige and Sasha encourage one another to meet romantic partners, but as part of a generation that is encouraged not to settle like their parents did, they’re pretty content with each other as de facto spouses.
