…we're keeping our name but expanding our offerings!
After becoming infatuated with a beautiful New York go-go dancer, college boy Doc devises a plan to get close to his crush by asking him to be the main subject in a makeshift documentary. But as they grow closer, flirtation blurs the line between subject and filmmaker and Doc is confronted with more than he could ever have imagined.
Getting Go was a delightful surprise. It is exactly the kind of story I love when I read romance books, especially New Adult books. It’s about the geek who longs for the stud. It’s about ingenuity and determination to get the man of your dreams. And it’s ADORABLE.
Doc is a student, who spends night after night online watching clips of and crafting the story behind a New York go-go dancer he’s infatuated with. He decides to reach out to the dancer, asking if he’d agree to be interviewed for a documentary he’s making. To his surprise, the dancer says yes.
As Doc first shows up with only his iphone to record, the dancer is none the wiser. He just likes being featured and answering the questions thrown his way. We get to know him as “Go”.
Go is HOT and he’s surprisingly well-spoken and has real opinions on why he does what he does for a living. He’s also charming and funny and as Doc falls deeper for Go, so does the audience. And on the flip side, as Go finds Doc more and more adorable, so does the audience. And we begin really rooting for the two of them to find a romantic connection.
WIthout sharing any spoilers, there’s just a sweetness to their connection and it surprises them both. As their friendship builds, we see Doc become more and more bold and Go become more and more vulnerable. They’re good for each other, these two. They expose each other to different aspects of life.
The ending was not what I expected, but I understand it. I respect it. I wasn’t ready for it. And it left me wanting more.
I really enjoyed this movie…surprised at how much, actually. Highly recommended!
