See Girl Run is a romantic drama film released in 2012, directed by Nate Meyer. The movie features Robin Tunney as Emmie, a woman who is married to a man named Graham (Josh Hamilton) but is not entirely satisfied with her life. She receives a postcard from her high school sweetheart, Jason (Adam Scott), who invites her to visit him in their hometown. Emmie feels a spark of hope that may reignite their romance, so she sets out on a journey of self-discovery.

The movie begins with a shot of Emmie running along the beach - a glimpse into both her love of running and, perhaps, her desire to escape her current life. She lives with her husband Graham in a small apartment in New York and works as a yoga instructor. But it's clear that there's something missing in Emmie's life, and she's teetering on the edge of emotional burnout.

When she receives the postcard from Jason, Emmie feels like she cannot pass up this opportunity to reunite with her first love. Without telling her husband, she takes a leave of absence from her job and travels to her hometown, where she stays with her parents. Her visit also coincides with her brother's wedding, adding to the emotional turmoil of the trip.

When Emmie and Jason see each other again, it's clear there's still a connection between them. Over the course of the movie, they begin to explore their feelings for each other, even as they deal with the practical realities of their lives. Jason is still single and living in the town where they grew up, working as a carpenter. Emmie, on the other hand, is married and has a successful career, but she's also questioning the choices she's made.

One of the significant themes of the movie is the idea of regret and the ghosts of the past. Emmie is clearly struggling with the weight of her past, both in terms of her relationship with Jason and the life she's built with Graham. She's haunted by the idea of "what could have been" if she had made different choices. Jason, too, is dealing with his own disappointments - his work is not as fulfilling as he had hoped it would be, and he's still single despite long-held dreams of starting a family.

Despite their initial spark, Emmie and Jason's rekindled romance is, at times, awkward and filled with doubt. Emmie can't shake the feeling that she's making the wrong choice, and Jason is hesitant to upend his life for someone who may not be ready to make a permanent commitment. Both of them are forced to confront their own insecurities and fears before they can move forward.

In addition to the central plotline of Emmie and Jason's relationship, See Girl Run also explores the dynamics of family relationships. Emmie's trip home forces her to confront the complicated relationships she has with both her mother and her brother. Her father, who has Alzheimer's disease, provides a poignant counterpoint to the other characters' struggles, highlighting both the fleeting nature of life and the importance of cherishing happy memories.

The performances in See Girl Run are uniformly strong, with Robin Tunney and Adam Scott offering nuanced portrayals of complicated adults dealing with their past while trying to move forward. The rest of the cast, including Jeremy Strong as Emmie's brother, provides solid supporting work, grounding the movie's more romantic elements in a sense of realism.

Overall, See Girl Run is a thoughtful, character-driven movie that explores the themes of regret, self-discovery, and the power of first love. Its focus on adult relationships and struggles set it apart from many other romantic dramas, and the strength of its performances makes it a worthwhile watch.

See Girl Run is a 2013 romance movie with a runtime of 1 hour and 29 minutes. It has received moderate reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 5.2.
