Comet, released in 2014, is a romantic drama film that explores the complexities and intricacies of a relationship between two people. It stars Justin Long as Dell and Emmy Rossum as Kimberly in the lead roles. The film follows Dell and Kimberly's love story, which begins on a meteor shower night. Both Dell and Kimberly are watching the meteor shower from the same spot and start talking. They spend the night wandering around the city, exploring and talking about everything from parallel universes to death.

Over the course of six years, the film explores their on-and-off relationship, which is marked by missed connections, miscommunications, and conflicting priorities. The narrative jumps back and forth through time, exploring different moments in their relationship, such as their first date and their breakup.

Dell is portrayed as a cynical and sarcastic, but creative and romantic guy, while Kimberly is characterized as a headstrong, confident, and passionate woman. Despite their contrasting personalities, they develop an instant and deep connection, a bond of empathy, and a shared sense of humor.

As the film progresses, the viewers gradually get a clearer idea of the complexities and intricacies of their relationship, as well as the elements that keep pulling them apart. Comet is a deeply emotional film, and both Long and Rossum deliver powerful performances that make their characters compelling and relatable.

The film's director and writer, Sam Esmail, uses a nonlinear narrative structure to tell the story, allowing the viewers to experience the relationship between Dell and Kimberly in a way that is both fragmented and continuous. The film's dialogue is witty and insightful, and the stunning visuals capture the unique landscapes and cityscapes of Los Angeles and Paris.

Comet is a film that requires the viewers' patience, as the nonlinear narrative structure may be confusing at times. But it eventually pays off, as the film provides its own commentary on love, time, and the universe in a way that is both profound and poetic.

Overall, Comet is a thought-provoking, visually and emotionally engaging film that explores the complexities and struggles of love in a way that is both relatable and poetic. It's a must-watch for anyone who appreciates romantic drama films and nonlinear narratives.
