I just watched this film in Cleveland last night and I have to say I was surprised by it. This is an original film, that does not take the expected route all the time which I really enjoy. The writing was good and the acting was believable. I just cannot define it - I mean I get the same chemistry film from this cast as you would a movie like The Big Chill or Sleepers,only definitely not as heavy or dark in the subject matter but more in the way the characters flowed and worked well together and you could expect watching the film that you were watching these peoples lives. The one thing that stood out scene wise was when one character talked about school preparing you for success but not for failure. It made me think of this movie's message from my perspective as sometimes perhaps failure is the key to success, cause at one point all these characters seemed flawed enough to fail on some level but at the end of the film they seem to have discovers success as a result of their own failure. Or at least that was my take on it. If you get a chance to see this movie take it.
