Storyline

Meet the Borgens. William Borgens is an acclaimed author who hasn't written a word since his ex-wife Erica left him 3 years ago for another man. In between spying on Erica and casual romps with his married neighbour Tricia, Bill is dealing with the complexities of raising his teenage children Samantha and Rusty. Samantha is publishing her first novel and is determined to avoid love at all costs - after all she's seen what it has done to her parents. In between hook ups, she meets "nice guy" Lou who will stop at nothing to win her over. Rusty, is an aspiring fantasy writer and Stephen King aficionado, who is on a quest to gain 'life experiences'. He falls for the beautiful, but troubled Kate and gets his first taste of love and a broken heart. A tale of family, love (lost and found), and how endings can make new beginnings. There are no rewrites in life, only second chances. Written by Becker Film Group

Stuck in indifference
24 September 2013 | by SteveMierzejewskiSee all my reviews

If you can believe any of these people are real writers, then you are far less cynical than I am. Would Scribners really publish the sexploits of a 19-year-old? Would Stephen King call a 16-year-old to tell him how much he loved his story? Not in my world where there is something we call, reality.

Yes, this is about different types of love. Strangely, all of the love connections shown here are dysfunctional. Maybe that's the point that the filmmakers are trying to make. Who knows? All the actors seem to be acting out their roles well enough; however, they seem to have no inclination to interact with anyone else. Maybe I was not in the right mood for this film, but I never felt any true connections between any of these people. All attempts to wring feelings from us, the audience, just fell flat because, in truth, we had very little sympathy for anyone. Maybe it was because they were trying to cram too much into one movie. Maybe if they had focused on just one or two of the relationships, we would have developed some emotional connections with the participants. As it eventuated, however, we ended up stuck in an emotional limbo that did not, in any stretch of the imagination, approximate love.
