(Welcome to ...And More, our no-frills, zero B.S. guide to when and where you can watch upcoming movies and shows, and everything else you could possibly stand to know.)

Sometimes the saddest tales of romance are the most memorable. We all love a happily ever after, but the odds of a relationship ending in forever is pretty slim — but that doesn't mean we can't enjoy the ride. After all, break-ups are their own kind of love story, just with a sadder ending. Getting it right isn't easy and should it end in tears, the healing process is more complicated than it looks. Sometimes a good cry and a bucket of ice cream is the way, but when it's truly love, it takes a lot more aching than that. The upcoming Netflix series "The Time It Takes" is delving into the way breakups stay with you, through the story of a woman wallowing in what was, and slowly learning to appreciate her present. Bring some Kleenex and come along for the ride.
