Thoughts of suicide, love, and Scrabble
12 April 2014 | by cekadahSee all my reviews

Qwerty is cute, uplifting, depressing, inspiring, aggravating, and ultimately happy.

The inhibited and unsure Zoe meets borderline suicidal and angry Marty. Marty & Zoe discover their lives and likes are very alike and a romance develops. This love gives Zoe the courage to join a scrabble team and participate in competitive games. Marty on the other hand perceives this as an intrusion into their love/friendship and fears he will lose Zoe.

Dana Pupkin and Eric Hailey create the perfect couple and bring their roles to life. You will cheer for Marty when he stands up for Zoe - but when he feels alienated by the Scrabble games I thought this turn in their relationship was too fast. He supported her all along then suddenly feels left out. I had a problem with this element of the story. That's the reason for 9 stars.
