Saucer crash
31 January 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This film uses the appearance of a flying saucer in the sky as a MacGuffin to move along a plot about relationship and infidelity. A still image of the saucer above a building is the extent of the effects in this film and also pretty much the extent of the issue of any real extra terrestrials. In an attempt to cover the aforementioned infidelity, the two main characters create lies that are detrimental to one of the colorful side characters. People over-react to situations and generally create that indie film quirky mayhem we are familiar with that is outside of actual reality. There are many questions that remain unanswered because the film is only focused on this little group of four people and their relationship issues. Ms. Jenner is a pleasure to watch if only because she is so darned pretty. The ending leaves one a bit unsatisfied.
