Storyline

Will is a rising star in New York City architecture, managing a tough project and negotiating to join an important firm. He rarely smiles. His wife Catherine is on the rise as well, as the social engine of his success. They have a son, about eight. Will hits a bump when he meets Kate, a designer of smaller spaces whose work Will has seen (at his son's school). He recommends her for a project, neglects to tell her he's married, and sort of seems available. She falls hard, then meets Catherine and gets a job offer in L.A. Should Will sign with the big firm, go with Catherine on a dream vacation in the Caribbean, and wonder about Kate in L.A.? A flock of birds may hold the answer. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Ugh, Good Cast, Nice Pictures, Miserable Script
29 April 2008 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

Saw this at Tribeca Film Festival and was surprised by the wretched writing. The cast is professional, and the photography, set and production design are all first class. The problem is a script that presents a somewhat dopey male lead, an unredeemable monster (b*tch) of a wife, and a seven-year-itch scenario.

The result is good actors reciting bad lines in overwrought scenes. We bought these tickets expecting that a cast including Patrick Wilson, Amy Smart and several other fine actors would deliver a good result. Tied to that script, they couldn't stay afloat.

The movie inspires me to create a new rule for young filmmakers: don't write a script with an architect as your main character, unless you are remaking "The Fountainhead." And don't remake "The Fountainhead."
