enjoyable despite -- or because of? -- being somewhat scattered
20 November 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is one of those "slice of life" movies where everyone acts like a fairly normal person, nobody is killed, nothing spectacularly dramatic happens, and things just roll through a series of "life moments" for those on the screen. The appeal mostly hangs on how much we care about the characters and on how resonant the dialogue and scenes are with how real life feels to us.

Well... this felt real enough, even though most of us won't have the kind of wealth sitting around that the male lead does. If we did, we might well have the life that he leads here, so it fits fine for movie purposes. All the other characters we meet seem like very everyday people, and all the developments are things we all live through and/or hear from our own friends. The way things work out for the central characters isn't settled until the very end, so our interest is held throughout, and the pacing is pretty good and steady.

So, it comes down to the characters and their portrayal by the actors, and everyone here does a fine job of breathing life into each one. They all feel real and they all seem to belong to the same reality.

I only gave the movie a 6; perhaps it should be higher, but despite the solid base I just described, I wasn't overly excited about this movie at any point. It's pretty good, but just that. I don't feel like my life has changed at all by having seen it, and there isn't any really new ground broken here, so... I can't rave about it. However, if you have the time to pay attention to solid performances in a decent drama, I expect you'll enjoy this one.
