Storyline

The film recounts a long-distance relationship between two people, Mattie and James who are in love -one of whom lives in Chicago, the other in New York City. But too many mornings and too many miles apart have taken a toll on them. As they struggle with the distance, their visits become reminders of the difficulties, not the pleasures, of their relationship.

Leads to nowhere
16 November 2011 | by CaligulaAzraelSee all my reviews

This is first mumblecore I've seen and I must say that I don't know why some people are so excited about it. Swanberg's movie is just a compilation of less or more boring scenes in which director and his star, Great Gerwig are talking, laying in bed, trying to make love and so on, so on. It's not that the whole thing is bad - it just leads to nowhere. There is no plot, there is no hidden message. The acting is quite good, especially Gerwig is doing nice job in here - she's very natural and has her own charm. Also photography and editing are better than I expected, being aware of that the film is practically non-budget. So - technically work is made unobjectionable, but the rest - the plot, tension, action - it just doesn't exist in this one. Maybe for few viewers it's kind of art. Not for me.
