EMMY ROSSUM DAZZLES IN BLUE AT LOS ANGELES FILM FESTIVAL SCREENING OF ‘COMET’!

As the 2014 Los Angeles Film Festival gets into full swing, Emmy Rossum walked the red carpet on Friday night, hitting a fashion high-note in a stunning royal blue dress for the screening of Comet, held at Regal Cinemas L.A. Live in Los Angeles, California. Rossum was joined by the film’s writer/director Sam Esmail.

Emmy Rossum (Shameless) and Justin Long (A Case of You) star in Milestone Media’s indie romantic comedy, Comet , written and directed by Sam Esmail in his debut full length feature. Rossum and Long play lovers Kimberly and Dell and the film immerses us in their six year relationship with all its ups and downs and the force of emotions that love brings to the surface. There is a lot of witty banter here to be sure, but Esmail might have over indulged here, as some of the dialogue darting between the couple, while smart, feels removed because it just doesn’t ring true to life. The pairing of Rossum and Long doesn’t always work in a script where the chemistry between the couple is key to going along on the ride with them and in turn feeling for them, perhaps identifying with some of their struggles. Comet is a good first outing from Esmail, who we will no doubt hear and see more from in the future.
