Storyline

A study of a relationship that starts quickly, burns bright, and then gets rocky, not from any one thing, but from an accumulation of civilization and its discontents. Stuart is glib and generous, Nicole is shy and forthright. He doesn't like her best friend; she tires of his brother's antics. She wants children sooner. He's a poor listener, she broods. Both have divorced parents, and their families complicate their lives. Is love enough to see them through? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Goofs

After Stuart's brother Jordan commits suicide, one of the following scenes shows the funeral for Jordan. At the beginning of the movie after Nicole meets Stuart, she mentions in a call to her mother that Stuart is Jewish. So, if Jordan is Stuart's brother, then he must be Jewish too. Therefore, he would have a Jewish funeral. In a Jewish Funeral, the men wear yipot on their heads (small caps to symbolize that god is with them), and there is no wake afterwards, the body would be taken immediately to the cemetery (not to someone's house).

One of best films of New Millennium
4 April 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Jeff Lipsky's touching, poignant, and strikingly honest portrayal of a young couple's long-term relationship—from the initial meeting during a tempestuous blind date to their highly libidinous courtship to their marriage and ultimate downfall—engenders a film that, for once, is truly deserving of the comparison to the inimitable work of John Cassavetes and Mike Leigh.

Quiet (no music that I can remember, less the title credits and the absolutely fantastic original song from the trailer that was tacked on to the end credits), stark, and extremely naturalistic in its execution, FLANNEL PAJAMAS is one of those truly adult films in line with the ilk of Mike Nichols' CLOSER, in which there is no room for clichés, no time for hackneyed aphorisms, and only an earnest reality presented in a forum that is always vivifying, sometimes humorous, and wholly infused with the utmost humanity.
