Prior to its official title, Look Both Ways had a working title as Plus/Minus. This is in reference to the results of a pregnancy test that is indicative of what the movie is about. At the Golden Globes, Kahiu explained that she got attracted to Plus/Minus because:

“It is an incredible story about women’s resilience. On the one hand, it is a story about a young mother. A young single mother, who is trying to figure out how her life works and how she pursues her passion. On the other hand, it is a story about a young artist doing everything that she can to get a break in the industry that is so hard to get into as a young woman. On both sides, it is about women striving for excellence and that is what drew me to it. Either through motherhood or artistry, it is about women striving for excellence. That is the most important thing and that is the big takeaway and why I wanted to be part of the project.”

Production for the movie was fairly quick. Reports say filming started on June 21st and ended by August 3rd. Most of the movie was shot in Austin, TX but there were some scenes that were taken in Los Angeles, CA.

Look Both Ways is just one of the many projects that Kahiu is working on. Apart from this, movie, Kahiu will be directing another Netflix movie entitled The Thing About Jellyfish, which will star Stranger Things actress, Millie Bobby Brown.

As shared by Netflix, the official synopsis of the film goes:

"On the eve of her college graduation, Natalie’s [Lili Reinhart] life diverges into two parallel realities: one in which she becomes pregnant and must navigate motherhood as a young adult in her Texas hometown, the other in which she moves to LA to pursue her career. In both journeys throughout her twenties, Natalie experiences life-changing love, devastating heartbreak and rediscovers herself."

This is basically a story that answers life's what-ifs. Natalie (Lili Reinhart) lives two parallel lives after her college graduation, both of which sees the young woman mature into someone happy and successful in her own way.

It makes you look back in your own life and wonder the same question.

The trailer opens with Natalie taking a pregnancy test on the eve of her graduation. Instead of getting the results, Natalie's life splits into two as the results dictate the outcome of her life.

A positive pregnancy result means that she stays in her hometown and takes care of her child. Meanwhile, the negative test result allows her to pursue her passion elsewhere. In either case, Natalie is seen juggling her life: as a single mother and her career.
