'Love Life’ Episodes 1, 2, 3 Preview: A peek into the first few years of Darby’s dating life
HBO Max is dropping its romantic comedy-drama featuring Anna Kendrick in the leading role and here’s what’s coming in the first three episodes
The sneak-peek opens with a caption, “From first love to lasting love” giving us a clear indication of what we could expect in the story. We see a young woman named Darby (Anna Kendrick), in the city of New York, working her way through the ups and downs of relationships. And it is not difficult to assess that ‘Love Life’ is a story of her journey of love. But where would it start and how far would it go?
As the preview reveals, Darby encounters different kinds of men as she starts her adult life in New York City. It appears from the clips that she dates each of these men, or at least has some casual flings with each of them. But throughout all her romantic adventures and escapades, the one thing she constantly seeks is love. In pursuit of that “lasting love”, Darby would explore everything that life has to offer: People, circumstances and change of jobs. Or so it is clear from the trailer, which shows in one of the scenes that she wants to be that woman who knows what she wants.
If one notices and tries to read between the lines, it is not difficult to assess that this search for love will also see an evolution in Darby. In one of the scenes, we see an elderly woman (perhaps Darby’s mother) telling Darby how proud she is of her, as she has grown from an experimental young girl to an independent, confident young woman. This also means that her experiences would also have been complicated and difficult, challenging her confidence and emotional strength, making her push her boundaries every time.
It is not news that as one grows older, they learn to handle life and its quirks way differently than how they would in their younger days. The first three episodes will most likely see the same for Darby; the first few relationships that Darby finds herself in, and how she handles each of them. Her experiences of love, lust, heartbreak, self-awareness and emotional quotient in the early relationships of her adult life will perhaps prepare her for the future.
Will the initial episodes determine it all? Get ready to join Darby on her rollercoaster love life as she opens the first few chapters of her story.
‘Love Life’ premieres on HBO Max on May 27, 2020.
