Cost of Living covers all possible bases
24 November 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This riveting film is not your typical redemption movie, though you see in a realistic fashion the main character searching for it diligently. Zach Braff plays a man without boundaries or concern for consequence who is suddenly arrested by his own poor choices. The story follows relationships between people who connect, but, just like real life, not quite perfectly. You see the cost of these relationships, and how sometimes there is no pay off. I loved the character development and entire mood of the film. Braff, who I watched religiously on "Scrubs" is phenomenal and unrecognizable from previous roles. The entire cast is great and production and direction may have had budgeting problems, but not enough to take away from this gritty (I promised myself I wouldn't use that word) tale.
