Storyline

Will is a rising star in New York City architecture, managing a tough project and negotiating to join an important firm. He rarely smiles. His wife Catherine is on the rise as well, as the social engine of his success. They have a son, about eight. Will hits a bump when he meets Kate, a designer of smaller spaces whose work Will has seen (at his son's school). He recommends her for a project, neglects to tell her he's married, and sort of seems available. She falls hard, then meets Catherine and gets a job offer in L.A. Should Will sign with the big firm, go with Catherine on a dream vacation in the Caribbean, and wonder about Kate in L.A.? A flock of birds may hold the answer. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

A slick urban morality tale that knows its limits
3 April 2013 | by orson-13See all my reviews

Patrick Wilson seems born to these sensitive professional male roles that require a rethinking of the smooth path the character is on. Director Tracey Hecht has a firm hand on an interesting and large cast and her script meshes the characters deftly,creating some drama without knocking heads. The film is realistically and interestingly placed within the world of architectural design and construction while at the same time offering an older New York office milieu kind of story. Without being cliché wealthy types, the main characters are likable genteel professionals on the way up, but reconsidering some avenues of personal and professional fulfillment. Amy Smart is charming, Wilson spot on, and Lynn Collins solid. Cinematography is excellent as are sets and locations. It's a truly unpretentious film and so may not be exciting enough for some.
