Storyline

Like many young men in their mid-twenties, two best friends and roommates are putting off the end of adolescence until the last possible minute. Peter, a philosophy major on the eve of his final PhD exam, and Lucas, a college dropout and lead singer in a Denver rock band, fear two things above all others...choice and change. When Elizabeth, Peter's high school sweetheart arrives unexpectedly for her father's funeral, their relationship barely survives the surprise. In four chaotic days they are suddenly forced to confront what they've worked so hard to avoid... the rest of their lives. Written by Anonymous

a rare gem, a must see!
14 March 2007 | by See all my reviews

I saw this film at the Starz Film Festival and thought it was terrific. It was real; it was raw-- I've never seen it done like this before. It has really stayed with me.

I was drawn in to this story and the reality of the relationships. It's about those of us that choose our lives, and those of us who simply react when others make those choices. It's about friendship, love, and wishing you never had to say good-bye to anyone. The script did a great job of revealing all the characters before the film starts in stark contrast to the people they've grown into over the years (without using a bunch of cheap tricks like flashbacks or anything.) All the characters were really well developed, and the film did an excellent job of stripping away the surface layers to expose the true, raw people that all of us are, but usually only when we're alone. The best part for me was watching an honest, intimate love story between two best friends (Michael Weston and Spence Decker) without the macho clichés or the witty, in-your-face dialog. Weston and Decker pulled off the subtleties like I've never seen. Their chemistry was refreshing and sometimes explosive. The film also stars Katharine Towne, Madeline Zima, Eric Thal (who I'm a big fan of), and a really awesome performance by Orlando Jones. Everyone was really good and together made a fantastic ensemble to watch.

I loved this movie. Spence Decker attended my screening along with a producer and they sat and answered questions for probably an hour after the screening. It blew all of our minds that he not only wrote the screenplay and starred in the film, but he also wrote and performed all of the music in the movie. When asked about it, Spence humbly sluffed it off that they couldn't afford Eddie Vedder. The music was awesome. It gave the film just one more layer of realism hearing him sing his own stuff. (No fake playing or lip syncing in this movie) He's definitely one of the most talented guys I've discovered in a long time.

I highly recommend this movie to anyone who wants to see a true reflection of relationships in the new millennium; How hard it is to connect to people, and then when we do, how incredibly hard it is to say good-bye and let them go their own way.
