“Someone Great” is a 2019 comedy written and directed by Jennifer Kaytin Robinson. The film stars Gina Rodriguez, Brittany Snow, DeWanda Wise, Lakeith Stanfield, and Peter Vack. The film follows three college friends that are all struggling with change. Jenny (Rodriguez) breaks up with her long-term boyfriend (Stanfield), Erin (Wise) who struggles with her feelings for her girlfriend, and Blair (Snow) who needs to break up with her boyfriend. The three try to forget their problems with a big night out. Over the course of the night the three each get what they want. It is very much a coming-of-age film for those in their 20s and how people deal differently with loss and growth, while continuing to be friends as their lives continue to evolve. It is a bit predictable but makes up for it with charm and the strength of the leads. The soundtrack is fun as well. It was released on Netflix.
