What If is one of my absolute favorite movies. It introduced me to Adam Driver as an actor, who is probably up there in terms of actors whose work I can connect with. It also led me to the awesome Zoe Kazan, who is a bad-ass. Have you seen Daniel Radcliffe and Zoe's boyfriend (Paul Dano) in the epic absurdity that is Swiss Army Man? It's so much fun. I also do love Stuck in Love because, you know, a family of writers is perfection.
