Storyline

A comedy/drama about 35-year-old Morris Bliss, who is clamped in the jaws of New York City inertia: he wants to travel but has no money; he needs a job but has no prospects; he still shares an apartment with his widowed father; and perhaps worst of all the premature death of his mother still lingers and has left him emotionally walled up. When he finds himself wrapped up in an awkward relationship with the sexually precocious, 18-year-old daughter of a former classmate, Morris quickly discovers his static life unraveling and opening up in ways that are long overdue. Written by Anonymous

This movie should be more like a 6.5 or 7
4 March 2014 | by twild76See all my reviews

I Love Michael C. Hall and if you liked Six Feet Under or Dexter I would highly recommend this film. It has an indie feel, it's not for anyone looking for an action film or a romantic comedy. Very real down to earth movie, if you have ever been depressed or felt like hiding away then you could related to the main character. All the acting is very well done and the female actresses "Brie Larson" "Lucy Lu" and "Sarah Shahi" are very attractive. It's also not going to take up much time at about an hour and a half. I got this movie out not expecting much because of the mediocre rating, but I'll let you be the judge because I was pleasantly surprised.
