A high school baseball coach (Krumholtz) and a down-on-his-luck private investigator (Burns) form a bond as they scour New York City for the coach's wife, who's run away with a second-rate rock star. As in Burns' previous films, the city itself becomes a character as the two men confront their fear of change and the familiar habit of loneliness. Written by
This is a film about a man hiring a private detective to find his missing wife. Along the way, he learns to let go and live his own life.
This is not just a detective story as I first imagined it to be. It is about learning to accept loss, deal with it and learn to let go. The private detective (Edward Burns) does a lot of detective work with a hilarious interrogation style speech. Yet, he comes up with all these counselling methods to help his client cope with his loss.
This film does not have expensive sets or nice costumes. It relies on the script to tell us a decent story. This film is effective, and makes you wonder why there are people out there who simply cannot let go.
