Two male actors/close friends want to jumpstart their careers. They end up making a big shot producer think that they have a hot script that everyone wants to get their hands on. The 2 men then drive to upstate New York and hole up in a family member's country home- with 10 dedicated days to write said script. Dominic and Raphael then get derailed by a beautiful gardener, Ava and Dominic's sister, Gigi. Both women appear at the house, which was supposed to be serene enough to focus on the task at hand. But to add to the problems, Gigi's boyfriend Wayne arrives, still suffering from PTSD, and his brother Devon as well, creating even more havoc. A looming deadline and complicated personal histories create scenes that are humorous and emotional. Written by Liora P

relationships, quirky friends & lovers...
5 January 2019 | by ksf-2See all my reviews

Two writers head to the country to clear their heads and come up with a screenplay with an impossible deadline of 10 days. Good acting all around, and a good basic story. Right away, we see conflict down the road, since the numbers don't add up. Alcohol, four dudes, and two hot chicks. Clearly, trouble ahead. and there are just SO many subplots going on here. The angry ex-boyfriend with PTSD. The muscled surfer who ends every sentence with dude. and apparently a LOT of resentment between the two friends, who are writing partners as well as co-workers in a bar. There IS a really good message in here, which I guess could be summed up as "stop whining and accomplish something". Don't ask for approval. Don't waste time talking and complaining. All good advice. The two leads (Michael Godere and Ivan Martin) frequently work together, so this could be their own story. Strong performance by Marisa Tomei. This easily could be a tv series, or maybe just have a sequel to see where everyone ends up. Really good ensemble group, kind of like seinfeld. Each character has their own story, their own strengths and weaknesses. Sometimes they follow their own advice, sometimes they don't. Recurring themes of love, jealousy, ambition, even hints of bisexuality. Lots of meat on the bones of each character. Mostly well done. Can't really say more.. that would be giving away spoilers.
