What begins as a clever "what-if" deepens into a poem about what really matters when people fall in love. Because the protagonists begin their relationship by speaking their minds to each other through a paper-thin wall, looks, sexual attractiveness, clothes, and other symbols people use to hide behind never enter into their calculations about the other person. These two fall in love with each other's minds. What they believe and how they behave matter far more than their superficial exteriors. As a director, Cornillac handles the wall as a helpful device -- sometimes comic, sometimes dramatic -- in the furtherance of the romance. Blind Date makes its case for unconventional relationships well. One night they cook the same meal in their respective kitchens, push their tables against the wall, and invite their closest friends to have dinner together. The evening is a great success as they explain how perfectly the relationship works. Their charmed guests agree.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
