Meet the Borgens. William Borgens is an acclaimed author who hasn't written a word since his ex-wife Erica left him 3 years ago for another man. In between spying on Erica and casual romps with his married neighbour Tricia, Bill is dealing with the complexities of raising his teenage children Samantha and Rusty. Samantha is publishing her first novel and is determined to avoid love at all costs - after all she's seen what it has done to her parents. In between hook ups, she meets "nice guy" Lou who will stop at nothing to win her over. Rusty, is an aspiring fantasy writer and Stephen King aficionado, who is on a quest to gain 'life experiences'. He falls for the beautiful, but troubled Kate and gets his first taste of love and a broken heart. A tale of family, love (lost and found), and how endings can make new beginnings. There are no rewrites in life, only second chances. Written by Becker Film Group

Pretentious . . .
25 October 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

And a waste of a talented cast. Really, if you're not a "beautiful people" New York socialite with literary pretensions (with a great beach house in the Hamptons and a designer wardrobe) you'll be hard pressed to find anything you can relate to in the movie. All you need do is look at the box office numbers posted on IMDb to see the film appealed to an audience numbered probably only in the hundreds, all living within 150 miles of Manhattan. In spite of all the under-stated yet conspicuous wealth depicted on screen I wonder if anyone involved got paid given the movie's almost non-existent receipts. Don't bother with this. It's a real yawner with zero wide audience appeal.
