Have you ever wondered…what if Lili Reinhart put her own spin on Sliding Doors? Well, we’re about to find out. The actor stars in Netflix’s upcoming Look Both Ways, about a young woman, Natalie (Reinhart), who graduates college and immediately has a baby with a friend…or doesn’t.
If she follows one path, she moves to Los Angeles to be an illustrator and hook up with a hot actor. If she takes another, she’s a mom in Austin. It all hinges on the results of a pregnancy test. Wait, is this a dramedy or a horror movie?
In addition to Sliding Doors, the two-paths movie starring Gwyneth Paltrow, this multiple-timelines framing device has also been used by the Idina Menzel musical If/Then and, more recently, the short-lived NBC drama Ordinary Joe (although in that show, which was kind of a mess and I loved it, a man’s life splits three ways). In fact, Natalie bears a striking resemblance to Ordinary Joe‘s pregnant-at-the-end-of-college blonde Jenny. Like, look! Same hair!
