Storyline

Middle aged Jonathan, Richard, Rob and Tim are friends from their college days, each who has had some modicum of success in his life, but each who is facing an issue resulting in dissatisfaction with his current lot.

Party boy Richard was once a novelist, but now resorts to teaching high school English to make a living. Stockbroker Ron is happily married with kids, but in providing for his family, he decided to steal from his clients which has now resulted in a probable indictment by the Securities Commission for embezzlement. And five years ago, openly bisexual Tim was the driver that caused an accident which killed both his sister and his boyfriend, the guilt surrounding which still remains with him. As they live in various parts of the country, they make a point to get together at least once a year for a ... Written by Huggo

Dark meditation on middle age regret
13 December 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A film as powerful as it is disturbing, I Melt With You is for those of us who loved "requiem for a dream," "old boy," "irreversible," and "eraserhead" for their darker truths. The four anti heroes here are the people we know if we open our eyes and look around. Intentionally bleak, it takes a cold look at a group of men who have made bad choices in their lives and come face to face with them. Not everyone is honest enough to admit the vast difference between who they said they would be and what they actually became. These characters are. And what makes I Melt With You even more disturbing is the backdrop of Big Sur. It is the ugliness of living set against the power and beauty of nature. I found this movie incredibly moving and original, but, like the movies above, it is not for everyone. Oh, the soundtrack is the best I've heard in years.
