Miles, a writer from Los Angeles, doesn't believe that relationships can last for him...so they don't. Stuck in a rut with his writing, riddled with loneliness and frustration, overdosing on self and acting out as a solution, Miles attempts to reignite his connection with Julia, his longtime, on-again-off-again, ex-girlfriend. However, when Julia finally warms up to the idea and things begin to move in a healthy direction, Miles battles his deepest beliefs, while struggling to stay positive and not sabotage their relationship.Written by

I was having a hard time deciding to rate this movie either 3-4. I ended up rating a 3.5 because it doesn't have a strong re-watchability factor. Miles to Go is like one long episode of Girls. That's all I could think about the whole time. It's relatable by the way it's shot, written, pop culture references, and characters. I really like the way this film is shot. There's some hand-held work and also some static shots. A lot of the shots last for a longer duration than most of your general audience may be used to. I love films that haves long duration shots. Quincy Rose, the writer, director, and also actor in this film has an eye for composition. There are two male character in Miles to Go that I do not like at all. First one being the main character, Miles, and the second being a small role as Miles' friend, Sydney. When they're together all they do is talk about having sex with woman and that's it. It's mostly the character Sydney because that's literally all he talks about when he's on screen and Miles makes sexual comments here and there. Here is a quote by the character Sydney from the film for an example: "Sometimes I just take my dick and slap across a woman face." I can't relate to these characters at all. There's a lot of repetition with Miles' everyday routine. I love repetition in films where you just watch this character do their daily stuff and for me, I become more invested into the character even if can't relate to him. As for the story, it's nothing new. It's just about a man trying to get back into a relationship with the girl who he just broke-up with. But the plot is what makes it a bit different and watchable. You get to see Miles do his daily routine, go to his psychologist and here him talk about how much he wants this girl again, yet he's still really negative about the future of all relationships, and then he has random sex with the girl he just broke up with. I feel that throughout the film you're suppose to think that Miles has really changed for the good, even though you don't see his past relationship, but I think he hasn't changed at all; he's just a scared, desperate man who doesn't want to be alone for the rest of his life. Miles to Go isn't a bad film at all. I laughed a couple times during it because of pop culture references, I was always wondering how things would play out for Miles as the plot unraveled and I really like the way it was shot.
