Back Stage: Celeste and Jesse and Mosquita y Mari Forever

This week's Screen Grab column is headed by two very unusual love stories. One is Celeste and Jesse Forever, which stars Rashida Jones and Andy Samberg as a former married couple who are still the best of friends despite wanting a divorce. The other is Mosquita y Mari, a coming-of-age tale concerning two Chicana girls (Fenessa Pineda and Venecia Troncoso) whose friendship may lead to something more. They're both delicate in their own way. My full preview of this weekend's film choices is now available over at Back Stage.
