Should Old Acquaintance Be Forgot, 30 December 2011
Author: wes-connors from Los Angeles

Approaching his "mid-life crisis" early, 39-year-old writer Lee Tergesen (as Alex) arranges a New Year's Eve party at his parents' seemingly secluded cabin. Younger by a few years, new wife Melanie Lynskey (as Alice) wonders if she's still attractive. They play host and hostess for two couples and two stragglers. The party of eight has varying degrees of closeness, with the main commonality being the men are old school chums. The protagonist is Mr. Tergesen. Important to Tergesen are the two "single" guests - uncommitted Paul Fitzgerald (as Nick) and blond model Gillian Jacobs (as Helena). The titular Ms. Jacobs was a bridesmaid at Ms. Dominczyk's wedding and Tergesen finds her very attractive...

The first guest "couple" is muscular Dominic Fumusa (as Don) and perpetually tipsy Jessica Hecht (as Lynn); they have a troubled marriage, with sex. The second guest "couple" is head-shaved Corey Stoll (as Steven) and pregnant Dagmara Dominczyk (as Eve); they have a troubled marriage, without sex. Yes, she is carrying his child, but it is from a rare encounter (note the mystery of condoms in his briefcase is revealed in a later scene). We follow the various groupings as they drink, smoke and snort coke. A big crisis occurs when the backgammon board is knocked over...

A piece is missing!
