ArtSlant review: “In Dress Rehearsal, people practice their heartfelt breakup talks, a candid video of people planning the end of their relationships, their speeches are not condescending, rather they are brimming with all the good things about the other person and how much they love them. They might be breaking up but they are planning on holding onto the good memories and love.”
