I saw this film at Tribeca and it really stayed with me. I was pleased it won BEST NY NARRATIVE - it was by far the best film at the festival. The concept of man being faithful has obviously been explored in film, but this is a fresh and very well told story. The acting is superb, both performances from Messina and Jones feel so real and true. While watching the film you truly feel like you are in this couple's apartment and lives, watching them struggle and deteriorate. Shapiro does a beautiful job giving the movie breath, letting us feel the reality of the situations. The cinematography is also beautiful - again real New York, not the one of shiny romantic comedies. it's definitely worth seeing when it gets released next year.

I saw this film last month at the BJFF and it's terrific! It's like a Jewish "My Big Fat Greek Wedding" but with a lot more intelligence and insight. Jennifer Westfeldt wrote a great script and is so likable in the film. Robert Cary did a great job directing. Chris Messina is an exciting new comedic actor, he plays a spot on New York Jewish neurotic. I loved him on "Six Feet Under" as Ted too. Judith Light and Fred Williard also deliver great performances. There are great cameos from Jason Alexander and a bunch of the "SNL" guys. The audience loved the movie, it's got more laughs than any comedy i've seen in a long time. I hope it's going to be out in theaters soon as I need to send my friends, family and therapist to go see it.
