Uncertainty is a superb film comprised of two separate, but equally compelling parts. Kate (Lynn Collins) and Bobby (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) are a young NY couple trying to decide how to spend their 4th of July. Mid-span on the Brooklyn Bridge, they flip a coin. When the coin lands, Bobby runs off in one direction and Kate the other.
When Bobby arrives in Brooklyn, he hops into Kate’s waiting car and they go to spend the holiday with her family. When Kate gets to Manhattan, Bobby picks her up in cab and they set out to enjoy the day on their own.
This could easily have been gimmicky, but the result is wonderous. The two scenarios are cross-cut thoughout the film, and together they give us a complete picture of Kate and Bobby as individuals and as a couple.
