This movie puts together a small, talented set of actors in four short segments about young love and the missteps that come along with it. The missteps tend to involve too much drinking, but there's a more interesting force at work as well--not knowing what exactly we want, wanting too much, wanting the wrong thing at the wrong time. The list goes on and will look probably look familiar to anyone who has toyed with love.
One of the great accomplishments of this movie is that it treats its theme lightly, drawing laughs more often than tears. Practically every scene feels genuine, as if it truly mirrors experience. The movie's easygoing tone may even offer a suggestion on how to deal with love--it's best not to take ourselves too seriously and best to avoid getting in over our heads.
To all appearances, the movie was shot on a low budget, yet the quality of the cinematography matches the acting and the directing--first-rate.
