Mitchell (Townsend Ambrecht) and Brett (Nikolay Moss) hail from a small town in upstate New York, but they have big dreams of starting a micro brewery and taking the beerworld of New York City by storm. And Mitchell's really good at making beer, too, while Brett's more into getting investors and the like - investors like Nick (Dexter Masland), a wannabe actor who's apparently just rolling in the dough and who has promised to put some money into the company, provided their beer tasting party at his place goes well. Brett also invites Grace (Julia Conley) to the party, a graphic designer who has promised to create their company logo - and who just happens to be Brett's high school crush, and he has not yet given up hope. Thing is, when Grace arrives, it soon becomes clear she's much more interested in Mitchell, and she even takes him home with her after the party. And from here on, everything goes downhill: Turns out Nick hasn't got any money to invest, he just likes to play the rich guy, Brett wants to have nothing more to do with Mitchell, and it turns out he never really was into beer brewing, just wanted to use owning a brewery for picking up women, and on top of losing both his brewery and his best friend, Grace pretty much disappears into thin air and doesn't answer Mitchell's calls. But there is always a silver lining, one just has to set one's sights right ...

 

Basically, Double Belgian is just a sweet film, one that finds its balance between comedy and drama without overdoing it on either side, one that really takes a slice-of-life approach to things rather than hitting some narrative "beats", one that neither sugarcoats nor goes the tearjerker route (so much so that it allows itself an ambiguous ending even), and that welcomely avoids spectacle and instead tells its story properly. And that the lead characters are all fallible yet relatable, and embodied by a solid ensemble also helps making this a pretty pleasant watch.
