Although it's been a couple of years since I've seen this movie, I felt compelled to write a review because of the crappy numerical rating it received on this site. This is the first thing I saw Billy Crudup in and I was pleasantly surprised to see that this pretty boy can act. It's also one of the few things I've seen Adrienne Shelly in since she parted ways with Hal Hartley. Essentially about the effect of infidelity on the three people involved (in this case two brothers and one of their wives), I found the movie to be well written, directed and extremely well acted. Not only that, it actually helped me through the period of my life after I found out my girlfriend was screwing around with my best friend. I highly recommend this movie for any indie-movie fan.
