Miles and Ellie fell in love in high school... and then they broke up. That much is clear.
"Miles & Ellie is a smart, carefully crafted production that happens to make us feel good while reminding us that we all pack a bit of extra baggage into the memories we carry around. In reality, our adversaries may not have been quite as vile as we remember. Our parents may not have been embarrassing. The carnival rides may not have been as thrilling as we like to think. But the love? True love is real. And when it's real, it lasts."Detroit Examiner
