Indie Flick that will make you think:
21 February 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Total indie but really well done, great performances, roller-coaster ride of a story, double whammy of an ending - whether you agree with it or not, it should make you think. Definitely sparked a great conversation with my friends.

I never really considered the psychological aspect of the people at the party before reading the other reviews here, but looking back it would have definitely been worth studying. It kept me wanting to know what was going on with everyone and where they'd end up by the end of the party.

The Boston character had a great journey, he humored me, then annoyed me, then disappointed me and I didn't like him, then I felt sorry for him. All the characters had these complexities, and I loved the relationship between the sisters, so intricate, full of love and admiration for each other but they obviously had a messed up childhood. It was really nice to see Whalin play a serious role. I loved the two woman party crashes on the back porch too, such a great friendship between them. Oh and the "rewind" (I won't give away the revelation, but it was pretty cool) and even had a song to match!

Although you may not know the names of all the actors, it's a great eclectic cast with great performances (mostly) and some familiar faces where I kept wondering where I'd seen them before. There's something for everyone in this film, multiple age groups, boy and girl humor, something to relate to along the way. My negatives? Not too many, there was a lot going on and a lot of characters, but I felt they all weaved together quite well, especially when they all split up and we got to follow their different journeys. It would've been nice to open up a little more and go outside more often, everything was very claustrophobic, but I had to wonder if that was due to lack of budget as the whole film pretty much takes place in the one house with a bit of outside "action". Still it worked to make me feel like a fly on the wall at the party.

Anyway,check it out, worth the 1.5hrs I say, and a great thinker flick :)
