James breaks it off with Katie, but feels bad about it. He doesn't like hurting people. At least he's seeing Monica tonight, she's always fun. He doesn't connect with her though, not like with Sarah - but they're just friends. He was close with Natalie too, until she moved to LA. That reminds him, he's going to work with that actress, Anna something. She's probably too famous to talk to him though. And besides, Lily should be back soon and he really wants to see her. Sometimes he misses Lorraine, but thinking about her just makes him sad. Whenever he feels lonely, he texts Rapunzel - that's not her name, he just can't remember it. He should really delete her from his phone. But he can't. Written by anonymous

What do i say about this raw, beautiful film?
29 April 2017 | by bcolebarSee all my reviews

This movie is a very real and accurate portrait of the modern millennial man, and his disconnection from REAL relationships. I found myself weeping at the end because i saw my own face in James, as I'm sure many men our age will, and i couldn't believe that there was a film that so accurately depicted the culture of booze and one night stands. Searching for that great SOMETHING in life, but getting in your own way. I spent so many years on alcohol and drugs, going from one meaningless relationship to another, all the while leaving a trail of broken hearts in my wake.. Little did i know though that in the end it was my own heart that would be broken most completely. The scene where he has sex with lily in the hallway, then pulls out right at the end, refusing to even finish inside her, because he didn't really care about her, and that's all he wanted from her in the first place, not even looking her in the eyes or saying goodbye. The look on her face, knowing that she had been used, really made me feel like crap. This movie is absolutely aching in its honest beauty. From the acting, to the soundtrack, and the writing. Ill place this movie up there with some of my very favorites of all time.
