Storyline

Most love stories are about finding love or losing it. This is a story about what happens in between. It follows Eric (Josh Pence) and Rachel (Spencer Grammer), two strangers on the heels of heartbreak. Much to the concern of their closest friends (Nate Corddry and Melissa Rauch), Eric and Rachel, still reeling from their respective losses, are finding it difficult to move on. But after a chance meeting between the two, everything starts to change. They embark on an unconventional friendship that guides them out of their respective ruts, but ultimately becomes more complicated as it develops into something more. Through it all, we accompany Eric and Rachel as they awkwardly - and, often times, comically - navigate the uniquely ambiguous space between losing love and finding it again.

Great mix of sorrow, solace, hope and despair-great acting with tremendous chemistry between the leads
30 April 2013 | by cp-94See all my reviews

This was a pleasant surprise. I think I was expecting a more low-budget product but was amazed at how much they accomplished on an indie budget. I found the story engrossing....it felt very real. One of the most pointed thoughts for me was, whether in actual death or deep loss of a love relationship, how complicated it can be understanding who/what died......can it be only the one who past or can it just as well be the survivors of the passed? I found this exploration interesting? Does one who loses a love one to death suffer and more or less than another that loses a loved one to relational breakup? I guess it is never clear who will be a survivor to live another day. I found the energy and chemistry that developed between Eric and Rachel very engaging and as it built I was further drawn into the film. It went by quickly which is usually the sign for me that a film is very engaging or entertaining. I haven't seen either of these actors on screen before although I saw "The Social Network" which Josh Pence was in but CGI'd out to accommodate identical twins. Spencer was also very good and I expect we will and should be seeing a lot ore of both of these very talented actors. I thought the rest of the cast was also terrific. The injected humor by their friends and the recovery group participants was very well balanced to offset the deep emotional struggles Eric and Rachel were going thru. It is very much like life though. When friends are going thru these deep emotionally dark times we are all unsure/untrained how to deal with them. So our attempts at levity and distraction are injected to offset our feelings of inadequacies, our need or wanting to help them get out of their funk. In the end, it is uncomfortable for all that are around them. Again, extremely well done. It touched my heart. I recognized it for what it was for me, another of those cathartic life moments.
