Film Summary

Black Lens | 1:20 | 2016 | USA | | View Website

A fresh, sexy romantic comedy that cuts to the heart of dating in the age of social media, How to Tell You're a Douchebag manages to be humorous and contemporary without breaking a sweat. Ray is a 20-something struggling writer in Brooklyn, venting frustrations about his stagnant career and love life via his blog, 'Occasionally Dating Black Women'. A public tirade puts him in the crosshairs of the fiercely intelligent Rochelle, an up-and-coming writer with zero tolerance for Ray's casual misogyny. Ray attempts to apologize, beginning a journey toward humility and unexpected romance in a comedy that upends all expectations of a modern audience.
