I was quite blown away by this directorial debut. Here, a number of friends reunite, all of them carrying serious baggage. I loved the intimacy with which the characters are presented, the way in which the writer-director captured so much nuance about each and every one of them. The ensemble were consistently pushed to emotional extremes, with each actor allowed to explore their own personal dilemmas. I would have loved to have been on the set to see how the cast created each moment. A very strong cast has been collected here, in one of those rare indie films that really reached in and yanked at my insides. Moving, unusual, and so refreshing after watching so much studio crap. Bring on this filmmaker's next project, for god's sake!!
