A dramedy about relationships and fidelity, or the lack thereof. A group of old high school friends, now in their late thirties, get together for the weekend to celebrate the 4th of July, for better or for worse.
This is a very lyrical film, a character study with very good performances. As it introduces us to the four main characters, it starts out in several locations, and the connections between them are not obvious. Bear with the disjointed structure, however, because the vignettes are strong. The four guys are all flawed, some more so than others. The most apparently sympathetic character is the Mexican busboy who just wants to send money home to his family, and always seems to be smiling. His friendship with the British playboy doesn't seem to make sense, until you realize that they're both fairly mischievous; one just has more permission to be so than the other. The two slightly older guys both seem burned and despondent beyond repair, but each of them also desperately wants to believe in something again, and that something is love.
