I saw this film at Dances With Films and enjoyed it very much. It was very funny and touching, although seemed a little slow in the beginning. The cast is great and professional and the writing is funny and heartwarming. My teenage daughter (who went with us) loves Marley Shelton and asked me the other day if this film is ever coming out on DVD. Does anyone know? This film has some interesting actors in it. Mark Pelligrino who plays Alan I saw recently in Capote. I also saw that Leslie Jordan who was in the movie just won an Emmy. Too bad more people don't get to see this sweet little film. I have started going to festivals a lot in the last few years to avoid the Hollywood glut. This is one of those little gems that you only get to see in this context. I hope that is not the case for long.
