Storyline

Dear Sidewalk tells the story of Gardner, a 24 year old mail-carrier, who is struggling to contend with his identity as his quarter-life crisis is in full swing. His regimented routine is thrown out the window when he meets Paige, a divorcee, enduring a mid-life crisis of her own. In this relationship there exists a synchronicity, as they find, despite their age difference, they're both confronting existential problems surrounding identity, love, and the choices in front of them.

Goofs

Gardner and Calvin throw horseshoes while discussing Gardner's problems. The camera interchanges between the two characters while the throws are only detected by the sound of the shoe hitting the metal peg or the wooden frame around the pit. The sound of Gardner's first throw is metal. His second throw sound is a wooden thud. His third throw sound is metal again. But when the camera shows a closeup of the peg, Gardner has three perfect ringers around the peg. See more »

Fun and quirky
4 July 2015 | by AlixisokSee all my reviews

I originally saw this film at the Austin Film Festival and was excited to see it again when it came out on VOD. I like dry humor and I'm an indie film fan and this was right up my alley. Non conventional with fun laugh out loud moments. I would have liked to have seen more of the ensemble cast as it was one of my favorite parts but I found all of the characters to be enjoyable. The romantic story line I felt could have pushed the boundaries a little more and have been more developed but the fact that it didn't fall into stereotypical plot points was refreshing. Josh Fadem who plays Calvin was a standout for me as was Michelle Forbes who I enjoyed from The Killing. Always nice to see actors stepping into fresh roles that go against type. Overall it was a fun ride that I'd recommend to my friends.
