1. What If
Directed by Michael Dowse, What If (originally titled The F Word) stars Daniel Radcliff as Wallace, a medical school dropout whose gone through his fair share of bad relationships. But then he meets Chantry (Zoe Kazan), an animator whom he forges an instant connection with. Unfortunately, Chantry already has a boyfriend whom she’s living with.
