There’s a scene in “She Got here to Me,” the writer-director Rebecca Miller’s juggling act of a romantic comedy, that sounds just like the setup of a joke: An opera composer and a tugboat skipper stroll right into a Brooklyn dive bar. The composer’s spouse, a psychiatrist, is again at their brownstone. However for the blocked composer, Steven (Peter Dinklage), his spouse, Patricia (Anne Hathaway), and his seafaring muse, Katrina (Marisa Tomei), what occurs subsequent is hardly a laughing matter.

The surprising liaison cures Steven’s author’s block. It additionally supplies an object for Katrina’s affection — or, quite, affliction. “I’m hooked on romance,” she tells Steven, revealing an anomaly in her in any other case impartial persona. As for Patricia, she’s acquired her personal compulsions. This can be a romantic triangle that will recall the screwball of a Nancy Meyers rom-com.

Buoyed by a rating from Bryce Dessner of the rock band the Nationwide, an unique Bruce Springsteen track and the knowledgeable performances of its all-in ensemble, the movie additionally casts a luminous aura round a primary love, that of two excessive schoolers, Julian (Evan Ellison) and Tereza (Harlow Jane). He’s Patricia’s son and Steven’s stepson; she’s the daughter of their housekeeper, Magdalena (Joanna Kulig in a soulful flip). Tereza’s stepfather, Trey (Brian d’Arcy James), is a persnickety Civil Conflict re-enactor and a court docket reporter.

The youngsters’ relationship hits severe snags, by no fault of their very own. Age performs a component, however so does class and Julian’s race; he identifies as Black. Amid the roiling neuroses of the adults, the younger beloveds present the movie with a shocking emotional ballast.
