The New Romantic follows a very familiar arc, but the path is certainly a pleasant one, thanks to Barden's naturally ebullient performance.

Mirroring its green protagonist, "The New Romantic" presents an image of sophistication while playing with ideas that are out of its depth.

A somewhat palatable quasi-rom-com that declares the death of contemporary romance from the get-go, only to try and resurrect it later.

The waif-like Barden is splendid in the central role, using her expressive eyes in the subtlest of ways to convey emotions.

This may be a quick and dirty debut, but there's something ineffably pure about how it portrays someone learning the give-and-take of getting what she wants... a comforting reminder that we're ultimately all just dealing with ourselves.
