Don't RESIST this little classic...
16 August 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A subtle and tender New Year's Eve 'caper/love story' that leaves everyone who watches wanting more. A view through the looking glass into the world of two conflicted loners who find each other (and themselves) in the least opportune situation.

Spencer Grammar is a star in the making who comes across as both the girl next door and the complicated loner. She encapsulates all of the attributes Natalie Portman was trying in vain to capture in Garden State, without the annoying and whiny undertones that made Portman's performance so flawed. With this and her current turn on As the World Turns, she will be a force to be reckoned with in Hollywood for years to come.

Tim Rouhana plays the straight man to Grammar's feistiness, and pulls it off with ease. The chemistry between the two is palpable, and one can feel the sadness and weariness in Tom's persona. He is tired and defeated in his quest for love and companionship, and Rouhana grasps that with a steady hand.

The score is charming and fits perfectly with the twists and turns in the plot arc. You can tell Rouhana is as adept a producer as he is an actor as the editing, photography, music, and sound all fit perfectly. Overall a little movie that keeps you intrigued at the outset and leaves you feeling warm at the end.
