But not really because of the reality of portrayal, no, the movies does that extremely poorly. Its depressing because there is no real chemistry between the actors which was supposed to be the driving force (someone said its like Sideway but gambling, which is a good description only Sideways was pretty good quality movie and upbeat while this is dark and has this pathetic feel to it), every interaction feels forced, every move they make feels forced, the whole movie feels artificial. And the base the movie is founded on. Its not realistic. I guess due to the overly depressing tone of the movie they figured, hey lets at least try to make it a bit upbeat towards the end. Makes it even worse. Because it is, as everything else, yeah, forced. The whole storyline meanders slowly and pathetically through something that was supposed to be somewhat entertaining and at the same time realistic portrayal of this life. But only ends up being depressing. Im not very much into too melodramatic or "realistic" movies that some people adore. I figure life is too much of that as it is. But I can appreciate a good movie, no matter the core. And Its not the actors fault as much as the producers and directors. Its just not a very good movie.
