Goofs

As the trivia section states: "Charles Manson has been imprisoned since late 1969. Assuming 40-year-old Conrad was conceived before Manson was imprisoned, this film must take place in 2010 or earlier." However, when they go to El Coyote restaurant, there is a billboard for the movie THOR clearly displayed in the background. Thor was released in mid-2011. See more »

Quotes

Conrad: I bring up Charles Manson and you freak out.

A joy to watch.
13 November 2015 | by (New Zealand) – See all my reviews

I felt compelled to inform interested watchers that the 5.8 IMDb score for this movie is way wrong. This is my first review and after watching this heartfelt movie, I decided that writer and director J. Davis does not deserve this movie to be poorly rated.

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed the story, characters and acting. The dialogue felt real and kept us interested throughout. Linas Phillips was a joy to watch and Jay Duplass adds his touch of realism to it as he did in Transparent.

Do yourself the favor of watching this film. I am sure I am not alone in how I rate this movie.
