A bit long winded in parts, but overall great movie
19 July 2013 | by (Austin, TX) – See all my reviews

This film was truly unique. It mixes actors with non-actors in a way that doesn't seem so jarring as it typically does in indie films. The result in this one is a true feeling of a real family dynamic, where some family members ARE less polished, not as well spoken, and living different lives than our main characters. I think anyone who has ever been to a family reunion has felt that. It works to great effect in this film.

My only complain about the film is the lack of tangible conflict or action... I did wonder why I was watching these characters at this particular time in their lives, but in the end I really didn't care. I enjoyed "hanging out" with these people very much and the leads put forth outstanding performances without overshadowing the minor characters.

The film is a reminder of why we watch Indies.. they don't have to follow conventions of structure or even plot sometimes. I was glad I spent my 100 minutes here, and I think most people will too, especially if they enjoy the differences that indie cinema brings out in the form.
