When newly unemployed journalist Fred Flarsky (Seth Rogen) happens to attend a posh charity event, he stumbles across Charlotte Field (Charlize Theron), his babysitter from way back in the day. She also happens to be the secretary of state. And running for president. Amused by his scruffy charm, she takes him on as a speechwriter and they soon find themselves falling – in love, on top of each other, and down long staircases.
With warmth, charm, and chemistry, Rogen and Theron give two of the best comedic performances of 2019, delivering a romance with genuine heart and huge laughs. An old-fashioned rom-com for our new-fashioned political landscape, LONG SHOT is a smart and hilarious look at an unlikely connection.
