Sweet, well observed if not particularly powerful, funny or moving, 16 January 2017
Author: runamokprods from US

My favorite film by Audley so far, this is helped by better camera-work, but much more critically by performances that bring more depth, variety and humor to his character's signature ennui, and by having those characters actually seem to care what happens in their lives, even if they don't know how to express that.

A musician meets an actress while hanging in NYC, and they get to the edge of a relationship, making out on her fire escape in a sweet opening scene before he has to go back home to Memphis. So he invites her to come visit with the hope of consummating the relationship and maybe seeing if there's more there. But she arrives with a friend in tow which complicates the dynamics, especially when the friend – another actress – finds herself very attracted to the musicians best friend, a struggling indie filmmaker played by the director. The awkward dances around sex, possible love, monogamy, long distance relationships have a nice sense of both humor and reality.

On the other hand it still doesn't add up to a whole lot, just some nicely observed moments that are more interesting and honest in their handling than those in most Hollywood rom- coms, but not transcendent into something deeper or more moving.
