Lovely movie that rings true
30 March 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a really nice little movie about two people who have a deep friendship at stalled points in their lives. Nate is an incredibly shy film student who is trying to explore life as a gay man. Margaret is a woman with dreams of being a stand up comic who has not learned to speak her own truth. Their friendship is the spark for both of them to move forward in their lives, not without conflict, pain and difficulty. Still, it remains a sweet, light-hearted and hopeful film. Nate's story arc in particular has a very genuine feel. There is really nothing in the movie that feels forces or shoved in for moving the plot forward. Everything flows out of the characters.

It's always nice to see Chicago in a movie as well. It's a location with a lot of character that doesn't get utilized enough.
