Movie Review: ‘The Divorce Party’

Review by Caitlin Zeigler

Nate (Thomas Cocquerel) meets Susan (Claire Holt) at the car rental business where she works. Five years later, they are married and following the same routines daily. Nate thinks everything is fine, until Susan tells him she wants to get a divorce. He breaks down, while she tries dating again. Susan is having dinner with her friends and found a new guy, who does everything she says. Nate and Susan both decide to throw their own divorce parties, even though Susan said she kind of just wanted to take a break.

Nate runs into one of their old friends, who recently got divorced herself. Katie (Matilda Anna Ingrid Lutz) agrees to help Nate throw his divorce party. She also helps him get over the shock of divorce and helps him learn to be his own person. Nate and Katie also start to like each other, but Katie is afraid she’ll ruin their relationship just like her marriage. It doesn’t help that Susan realizes she’s made a terrible mistake and wants to try again with Nate.

This film is okay. The plot goes straight from point A to point B, but it is a bit boring. It shows how a divorce affects some people. It’s a little bit funny and a little bit sad. It’s something you’d watch if you didn’t have much else to do. It feels like it’s missing something though, so watch it if you’re bored.
