Life Partners (2014/Magnolia Blu-ray)

Picture: B Sound: C+ Extras: A Film: B+

Sasha is a lesbian. Paige is straight. Sasha (Leighton Meester) and Paige (Gillian Jacobs) has been best friends since forever, but when Paige suddenly gets a fiance, things start changing between their relationship. And no way is Sasha letting another (specially a guy) replace her friendship with Paige. Sasha and Paige have always been good friends even thought Sasha is gay and they have never been lovers. They had always had fun with girl's night, sleep overs, games and late night jewel making kits... and everything was great.

That was until Paige gets a boyfriend, now Sasha becomes is forced to become No. 2 when compared to Paige's new boy. As tensions build between them, they face feelings of jealous, betrayal and lost of the friendship they once had, but it is only after they separated do they really learn about themselves and their friendship. Paige ends up destroying her relationship with her boyfriend when she learns she is like her mother, a control freak and always blaming others. Sasha forgets to do her job and gets fired from her job after she spends too much time on facebook and texting. You'll have to see the rest for how it works out.

This was a mix of modern drama with a little slice of life. It was a comical story of how friendships can change after marriage or finding a boyfriend/girlfriend.

The 1080p 2.35 X 1 digital High Definition image is just fine for a recent digital shoot, but the DTS-HD MA (Master Audio) 5.1 lossless mix is more dialogue/joke based than as active a one would like. Extras include behind the scenes with cast, characters, production and costume design, A Look at Life Partners and trailers.
