Being single in modern times kind of sucks. When my parents met or their marriage was arranged it seemed like an easier time to meet the one you would spend the rest of your life with. Today most people meet off an app or a website that lets you browse for your future love by window shopping and picking the one you feel most compatible with. If you don’t choose that route, maybe you will still get lucky enough to meet someone through your work, kind of like how Danny and Ellie met.
Danny (Cullum Turner) is a good boy who lives in the city with his mother and brother Darren (Michal Vondel). Danny loves to cook and lives a pretty boring life, that is until he gets a collect call from his brother in jail. It seems Darren had a job to do and he asks Danny to do the job for him. Reluctantly he agrees to do it, since the job sounds easy enough. All he has to do is meet a girl, get a briefcase, and then exchange it for another bag, that’s all. When he meets Ellie (Grace Van Patten) they complete the first part of the job just fine, but then Danny mistakenly exchanges the bag with the wrong person. Lucky for them they have a clue who that person was, and the pair hunt them down, as they slowly become fond of each other.
“Tramps”, which is written and directed by Adam Leon tells a nice little story about finding love in the most unlikely of places. Leon lays the groundwork, but it is Turner and Van Patten who bring it all together with their performances. What is so nice is that you can buy into the idea that these two could end up together in the real world as well. The stars chemistry is not the only high point, the story, while simple, is an easy watch as the film moves right along. Lucky for you, you don’t have to go far to find this enjoyable film. All it takes is a Netflix account and a couple of hours and you will see a film you will soon be recommending to your friends.
