What happens when your non-sexual life mate meets Mr. Right?

Life PartnersThe delightful romantic comedy “Life Partners” explores the universal themes of female friendship and sexuality in all of its absurd amazingness.

Straight Paige (Gillian Jacobs, “Community”) and lesbian Sasha (Leighton Meester, “Gossip Girl”) are co-dependent best friends in their late 20s. They text each other all day, talk every evening, and have a weekly date to watch “Top Model.”

Both date now and then, with little luck, until Paige meets nerdy Tim (Adam Brody). Despite some superficial drawbacks (questionable facial hair, a penchant for quoting “The Big Lebowski” at the drop of a hat), he’s kind of cute.

As Paige and Tim’s relationship grows, the bond between Paige and Sasha inevitably shifts. Suddenly without a “partner,” Sasha is left to examine her own shortcomings and panic about her impending 30th birthday.

Passive-aggressive conflict brews in their friendship until the girls must finally confront the question they’ve been avoiding: Can their friendship survive growing up? With Gabourey Sidibe, Julie White and Kate McKinnon. Co-written by best friends Joni Lefkowitz and Susanna Fogel, directed by Fogel.
