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.

Amazing film! Haunting and vivid.
14 December 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I am very surprised to see so many bad reviews. I first wanted to see this film because of the cast and I am an independent filmmaker that enjoys the oddball films.

What I loved most about this was the soundtrack mixed with this ever depressing plot. This film is Alexander Payne on cocaine. Yes it is depressing but so are legendary film such as Trainspotting.

Much like Trainspotting and the amazing Director Danny Boyle, this film has some of the most beautiful photography around. Weird and crazy, mostly out of focus and shaky/abnormal shot help portray the chaos of this film.

If you honestly sit and watch this film for what it is (an experiment to dive into the soul and inner thoughts of middle-aged men) and not the next Hollywood Blockbuster then I think people may enjoy it more.
