Those who stuck with me during the monsterous 13-day coverage blitz that was this year’s Sundance Film Festival might remember this little love story. Peter and Vandy, from director Jay DiPietro, is a traditional love story told in a very non-traditional way. Like the Sundance darling 500 Days of Summer, it is told in a completely non-linear way. But unlike 500 Days, Peter and Vandy isn’t a hipster fantasy — it’s a real love story set in New York City, with two great central performances from Jason Ritter (W.) and Jess Weixler (Teeth).

Today I’m happy to present you with an exclusive clip from the film, in which Peter (Ritter) and Vandy (Weixler) have their first date over dinner. For some context, consider this: they’ve just met and even though she was dating a guy, he asked her out. And as he soon finds out, she wasn’t very attached to that guy to begin with. It’s a short clip, and it doesn’t exactly give you a clear picture of how well this film deconstructs the modern relationship, but it’s a start.

Peter and Vandy opens in limited release this Friday, October 9th. The clip and the official synopsis are below. For more, read my Peter and Vandy review from Sundance.

As anyone who’s ever been in love can tell you, it’s a slippery slope from “We’re head over heels in love!” to “We’re fine.” PETER AND VANDY takes us through the relationship of a young New York couple – just not in chronological order. Most movie romances end when the relationship is beginning. Peter and Vandy’s love story goes much further than that. The story shifts back and forth in time, whipping between their romantic beginnings and the inevitable struggles that follow. With star-making performances by Jason Ritter and Jess Weixler, PETER AND VANDY is a unique take on the exhilaration and frustrations love can bring – a love story in disorder.
