Two male actors/close friends want to jumpstart their careers. They end up making a big shot producer think that they have a hot script that everyone wants to get their hands on. The 2 men then drive to upstate New York and hole up in a family member's country home- with 10 dedicated days to write said script. Dominic and Raphael then get derailed by a beautiful gardener, Ava and Dominic's sister, Gigi. Both women appear at the house, which was supposed to be serene enough to focus on the task at hand. But to add to the problems, Gigi's boyfriend Wayne arrives, still suffering from PTSD, and his brother Devon as well, creating even more havoc. A looming deadline and complicated personal histories create scenes that are humorous and emotional. Written by Liora P

In my opinion ....
5 January 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

... this is one of those movies you can't go wrong with when looking for a human everyday life story with good acting and fine dialog.

I had not heard of this flick but noticed Sam Rockwell is one of the actors along with Marisa Tomei and these two seem to always give life to each role they play. Both are multidimensional actors always capable of capturing the viewer.

The basic plot is two actor/writers escape the distractions of NYC in the summer to go to a NY country side house to concentrate on writing a script. But unexpectedly find themselves even more distracted by family and friends who happen to show up. They also unexpectedly find themselves dealing with their own emotional & psychological needs and conflicts.

A well done story of people at crossroads in life. Don't expect closure at stories end because this story is just a look at a few days in these characters life.
