  • Dating in the digital age is, no doubt, a complicated affair. Bumble, Happn, OkCupid, Tinder, Hinge, Raya, Match, Coffee Meets Bagel, The League – there’s almost too many to name – each caters to a different style of single looking to orchestrate their own meet-cute. For some, this makes dating a far less complicated process, but, for others, it can just seem like an easy path to a booty call. That certainly seems to be the view of college sex columnist Blake Conway (Jessica Barden) in "The New Romantic", the feature debut of writer/director Carly Stone, as she takes the leap from sexless single to full-on sugar baby.
