life's other plans
17 March 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

this movie offers some deep beneath the surface views of just living.

we have four characters that come together to create a rock band. it's sort of a half backed mutual idea in each one; and they find one another to pursue this 'idea'. it's not really a passion.

stevie seems the most driven but i believe he represents those notions we get and start working on it - then loose interest because other internal needs distract us.

emily is like stevie only she has her idea of her art and a not so interesting boy friend that leaves and makes her happy.

billy will never amount to anything because he thinks he's got 'it' right before he starts and will be forever complaining when things don't go his way.

neil is just along for the ride and will go-with-the-flow where ever he is or whatever he does.

in each case their plans to live are redirected by life's other plan. stevie & emily will get together. billy will forever be more interested in his cigarette's. and neil will be 'ok' !!

a delightful indie flick for those that enjoy budget movies.
