Storyline

Gabriel is a man who on the surface has it all-successful professional life as an architect, a beautiful wife, Annie, and a devoted young daughter, Elizabeth. But slowly it dawns on him that he is not really happy. Gabriel decides that he wants to write a play about the sorry state of his life. He quits his job, gets a pushy literary agent friend to represent him and starts writing. Although his marriage ends in a divorce, the play is success and although his life is different than it was, he is happier. Written by Brooks Branch

Quotes

[first lines]
Gabriel: [listening to self on dictaphone] Oh wow! Until now is the only time I ever felt sure about anything. My whole life never seems to catch up to that moment. But to be unsure, well, I don't know. What if there's no reason in your life to feel shitty, but you do anyway? No enemy to point at. What do you do then?

Very promising start, but loses its way
20 September 2014 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

What this film was really missing was a real turnout to explain a playwright's boredom with all the good things he couldn't enjoy. Or a real, Allen-like neurosis (but that is overdone), perhaps of the psycho kind.

Unfortunately, the intelligent dialog and the good cast can't really make it memorable. From the way the story is told, the viewer becomes unsympathetic towards the main character (and it's nothing wrong with that), but the latter's motivation is thin at best, and that's wrong and makes him a spoiled whining nerd. Which most real writers and real men aren't - hopefully.

Well, it's disappointing, but it still might win an award, the Have a Great Cast and Dialog and Still Ruin the Film award.
