One of the best indie's I have seen yet
13 October 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is bound to become a cult hit! At first, it does warn you in a small way that it is going to be dark but when that first awkward moment comes, it is a bit of a shocker.

Then as the movies moves along, you realize that there is a part of you and probably everyone that has been in the protagonist's position of feeling uncomfortable when you realize the person you love is now presenting themselves through the friends they have and the yoke is NOT even.

I will probably watch this flick more than 3 or 4 times as I can already tell that it has a charm, though awkward, that keeps one drawn to seeing it more than once.
