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?

This film examines an interesting aspect of life...friendship between men and women without sex or romance. It's something I personally relate to because my best friends are women (and most of them are also close friends of my wife.) It also is a very well written and well directed film. The lines are good and they are well delivered in a very natural and understated manner, almost as though the scenes were improv. The concept of the play within a play, certainly not an original dramatic device, is, nevertheless, done effectively. This wasn't a big buck film, either in its production costs or its box office. But I suspect the people who made it are motivated more by artistry than by avarice.
