Writer/Director hasn't lost control of a good story
25 March 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Knew nothing about this movie but was enticed into the theater by the offer of a Q&A with the writer/director after the movie. Wife and I thoroughly enjoyed the movie. Strong, smart female lead (when was the last time you saw a female scientist doing real science not dressed in a wet T-shirt or other inappropriate garb?) with a strong, sensitive, supportive male who is not a wimp, jerk or axe-murderer. This managed to be romantic and funny, in a real-life way, not slap-stick. There is the usual dynamic tension in relationships, with an undercurrent of something sinister going on too. The reveal is satisfying and doesn't overpower the story. I love little surprise movies like this-no hype, no big studio promoting their $250 million dud, no big star hawking it on late-night talk shows. This is a heart-felt, true-to-life-experience story that is fun to watch and talk about long after the lights come back on. Reid Scott is a young George Clooney-he has the looks and can act. If this comes to a theater near you, run to see it.
