Storyline

Details the trials and tribulations of four student photographers who collaborate on one final project before graduation. Caught sharing photos in their portfolios, David, Karma, Danny, and Kevin are given a chance to save their final grade before graduation. Danny returns home that night to find his fiancé Stephanie in bed with another man. Unnoticed and enraged, he photographs them in the act, and shares the picture with the others. Inspired by the raw nature of the photograph, the four friends agree to use it as the thesis for their new portfolio... capturing subjects at their most vulnerable. Soon, their exploitative behavior begins to tear apart their lives and relationships, and they must come to terms with the harsh truths of their lives through the lens of a camera.

Refreshingly unpredictable
26 September 2002 | by (Baltimore, MD) – See all my reviews

Besides the strong acting and the compelling compositions the thing I remember most about this film is that the story arcs for each of the four main characters aren't hackneyed or trite but genuinely surprising. Even when they seem like they're approaching well-tread dramatic terrain the script takes original turns to elevate this film above standard dramedic fare. It's a testament to the screenwriter/director (and to the actors for making these plot points convincing) that this comes off so well. Highly recommended.
