A unconventional take on relationships
This movie takes an interesting and original perspective on the beginning of a sexual relationship between two people -- highlighting the excruciating awkwardness and self-consciousness, as opposed to the excitement and giddiness. The movie also conveys the message that it is the underlying strong emotions between the two characters that are responsible for the strained awkwardness between them. Over all this movie made me see relationships through a different, but nevertheless, very realistic lens. It made me think about all of the nerve-racking second-guessing and self-examination I go through at the start of relationship, and this is not typically portrayed in movies. The negatives: I was not as sympathetic to the female character as the male character.
