A likable movie about likable but flawed characters
9 February 2015 | by peramneusSee all my reviews

This is a type of movie I usually don't appreciate. This is a drama movie. To be more precise, this is a kitchen sink drama movie. I don't like that. Especially, I usually don't like American drama movies. I think a lot of them are crap, idealizing the world and the characters into being either good or bad, and in the end the characters don't make any sense, simply because they are not believable.

This one is different. The characters in this movie are believable. They behave in a way people actually behave. Watching the movie is like sitting in a room filled with people who just cannot shut up. They (at least sometimes) try to do the right thing; sometimes they succeed, sometimes they don't. Just like real people would do.

I like this movie a lot. It's not a masterpiece, but it is good. Moreover, it is something fresh and new, and I would like to see more from this director.
