While the film is mostly a rom-com, it also shows an authentic relationship. During the theatrical run, Auisello spoke to Collider about the portrayal of the relationship and how it’s not “Hollywoodizing.” He explains that being “true to the book” is what was important to him from the start.

“There were certain aspects of the book, like the book’s DNA, that I wanted to capture in the film, and they were all on the same page. One of those things is that relationships are messy. humans are imperfect. And there’s no value in softening those hard edges or sugarcoating aspects of it, because that’s the reality, and I think that’s what makes the book and the movie ultimately relatable.”

Auisello also shared that seeing his real life in front of him was surreal, although he “never felt like I was replaying my life in front of my eyes. I knew we were making a movie. I knew this wasn’t a documentary.” He praised the performances of Parsons and Aldridge, noting how they gave Michael and Kit “their own spin.”
