It was at a very young age that Abby found herself experimenting with the gift of art while she practically grew up with her aunt while her parents would travel the world without her. Years later she's living with her friend and co-worker Jessica and has the perfect boyfriend, Sy, who doesn't mind seeing romantic comedies, posing for her artwork, and playing in the snow. But suddenly Abby begins tutoring Jessica's cousin, Quinn, about the world of art and while doing so finds herself torn between what real love is. Can she choose between the perfect boyfriend of her dreams and the fun-loving boy from her humanities class? Written by cestlavie03

Yes, this film is what you want, if you adore romantic comedy

Abby (Shiri Appleby) is an art student at a university and quite talented. When she was a child, her parents dropped her off, most summers, at her Aunt Edna's remote Montana ranch. Having few friends and not a lot to do, she devoted herself to making pictures with her crayons. She also "made up" something else, an imaginary boyfriend named Sy (Orlando Seale), who she still clings to. If the day goes wrong, she converses with Sy, who is very real to her, obviously, and she often tells her small circle of pals that she has a boyfriend. As can be expected, her roommate, Jessica (Alexandra Holden) thinks this is absurd. Both ladies work at a Borders bookstore, Abby as a barista and Jess as a cashier and book adviser. Out of the blue, Jess asks Abby to help tutor her cousin, Quinn (Nick Zano) who is struggling through an art appreciation class. Whoa, Abby is in the same class and she detests this young man! But, after some fervent pleas, Abby agrees. As the two students get to know one another better, the ice begins to thaw, as they say, which upsets Sy immensely! Will Abby finally realize that human relationships are far better than imaginary ones? This is a sweet film, told with humor and skill. There have been, admittedly, various variations on this theme in recent years, but its still very pleasing for the usual fans. The cast is nice, despite being relatively unknown, while the setting, costumes, script and direction all result in a good-looking and well-made little television movie. For those who seek out this one, oh romcom admirers, it will definitely bring you exactly what you want.
