Storyline

Middle aged Jonathan, Richard, Rob and Tim are friends from their college days, each who has had some modicum of success in his life, but each who is facing an issue resulting in dissatisfaction with his current lot. Divorced father Jonathan is a physician whose practice is largely made up of wealthy patients for who he writes prescriptions for drugs for recreational use in return for payola. Party boy Richard was once a novelist, but now resorts to teaching high school English to make a living. Stockbroker Ron is happily married with kids, but in providing for his family, he decided to steal from his clients which has now resulted in a probable indictment by the Securities Commission for embezzlement. And five years ago, openly bisexual Tim was the driver that caused an accident which killed both his sister and his boyfriend, the guilt surrounding which still remains with him. As they live in various parts of the country, they make a point to get together at least once a year for a ... Written by Huggo

Trivia

The scene where Rich (Thomas Jane) and Tim (Christian Mcakay) are joy riding in the porshe is a clear nod to Kubrick's 'A Clockwork Orange' wherein Tim starts 'Whooping' in similarity to the Durango speeding scene of 'Clockwork'..only sealing it with "Go Faster..got faster!" See more »

A masterpiece, and stupid at the same time.
24 December 2011 | by NesvrstaniSee all my reviews

I didn't have this much mixed emotions for a film in a long, long time. The film blew my mind. I will divide it in two parts. As the film lasts two hours in total, let's divide it in an hour each.

The first hour is a masterpiece. Such good acting, dialog, scenery, the director, Mark Pellington, has truly made a masterpiece. I did not see such good ''camerawork'' in a long time. The actors, could have not acted better. I was stunned by the chemistry between them. It truly is, if you don't mind the theme of the story, a fantastic 'drive' through the first hour. The soundtrack, was also stunning as well. For the first part of the movie, had it not have changed through the second part, it would have been an 11/10. By the virtuosity of the complete package, a flawless portion of the film, with amazing realistic relations and events.

After things go wrong, in more ways then one, the movie kinda goes on another road. Not that it's a bad road, but the execution was bad. A story, that I could not completely believe, kinda left a bad taste in my mouth. To end it all like they did, was in my opinion, a bad way, and the film simply goes downhill.

Why the incredibly high score then? Because it was beautiful. It was stunning, and as others pointed out, not for the emotionally weak or those who live in a glass house, not involved with real life problems and tragedies we all endure during our daily lives. To put it in overused terms, it's simply epic, and emotionally draining.

A gem.
