This movie is much better than the average grade given.
I watched this with fairly low expectations, as I had never heard of it. However, it is a very poignant, intelligent and sometimes very funny. Director/writer Vanessa Middleton, has simply not found her due. I would like to see more from this very talented director/writer, and it's a shame it is not already out there. It is an interwoven cast of characters, each going through the trials and tribulations of crossing the ever-creeky and creepy bridge to thirty. The dialogue is smart, and fresh for a change. The characters are colorful, and how it starts w/ one character's 30th, and ends a year later on her 31st, was very well-done, as it wrapped IT ALL UP VERY NICELY!!
