Spend one eventful, fantastical day in the lives of young, lovelorn Yas (Vivian Oparah) and Dom (David Jonsson) as they meet cute and grow closer in this vibrant, delightful, hip-hop-soundtracked romantic comedy that’s “Before Sunrise” set to the pulsing rhythms of Peckham, South London. —M.G.
Yas and Dom meet in a South London art gallery, having recently both gone through disastrous breakups. Despite disillusionment with their love lives, their connection is an instant spark, kicking off a single fast-paced day to remember, set against the romantic spirit of the city and the legacy of hip hop. Taking an imaginative and hilarious journey through each other’s romantic past and present, Yas and Dom slowly discover they may just be perfect for one another—if they can overcome their hang-ups. Effortlessly modern and shot in glorious neons, RYE LANE is sure to be a romcom classic that takes on the new rules of dating while celebrating the contemporary majesty of a neighborhood. —C.F.
