Storyline

Zach and Avery Treus are brothers, roomates and aspiring novelists. After two years of scraping by in pursuit of their dreams, older brother Avery's ambition seems to have faded. As he makes plans for the future, Zach fumbles along, determined to pen the final chapters. Over the course of seven days their relationship is tested when two new people enter their lives. One, a mysterious blonde, summons a new confidence from Avery. The other, a derisive gutter punk, opens Zach's eyes to a new world and way of life he was previously unaware of. Seemingly doomed by ill fate, the brothers impulsively turn against one another. Written by Anonymous

Not Bad except for that guy!
15 June 2005 | by (Vancouver, BC) – See all my reviews

I thought this movie was pretty decent for what was apparently such a low-budget independent effort. The director, Sean Devlin, obviously has a pretty good eye, and a lot of the film is rather beautiful, poetic even. Unfortunately, the character development is rather rushed, and I wasn't left with the sweet feeling inside that the final shot perhaps suggested I should have had. This movie could have been really good ... had it not been for that damned guy who starred as Avery. He was absolutely horrible, an over actor of the greatest degree. He belongs in perhaps an attack of the giant sasquatch type film, where his mugging, and overacting would be better suited. Other than having him spoil many scenes for me, the movie was surprisingly good. I hope Devlin makes more.
