A low-budget indie gem.
28 May 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Josh is a guy full of anxiety issues. Has problems talking to people and just social situations in general. His coworker, Aurora is working on a psych paper that's all about social anxiety. She decides to use Josh as a guinea pig and in the process frees him from a lot of his troubles. However, there's many catch 22's. And it's the catch 22's that's the overwhelming bulk of the film. I wont say anything else. But i will say I enjoyed the film quite a bit. Imagine a low budget indie version of Punch drunk love, except the lead isn't violent at all. In fact, he's quite an innocent guy, which is where some of the humor comes from. Although the film can be a bit funny at times, I'd definitely say it's a drama for sure.
