Lovely and Funny indie film made with passion
16 September 2014 | by photos-108-904134See all my reviews

I caught this film when I attended the very fun Rhode Island International Film Festival. It won for Best Feature and I honestly felt it was well deserved. I was very surprised that the actor playing the lead is not in other major motion pictures as he absolutely carries the film and is wonderful throughout. It felt very cool to see an as of yet undiscovered star.

I really enjoy the film, identified with the main character's plight, and laughed out loud a number of times. Was shocked to learn that the filmmakers raised the money themselves and the whole thing cost under $50k. Incredible achievement.

The filmmakers said in the Q&A that they were influenced by the Duplass Brothers and Lynn Shelton and I definitely can see that.
