Storyline

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

Flirting with emptiness
8 June 2017 | by Prismark10See all my reviews

Raphael (Ivan Martin) and Dominic (Michael Godere) are struggling New York actors who claim to have written a film noir screenplay in order to get tax credit funding for $300k. This could be the big break they are looking for as they struggle to get theatre parts and work in bars to make ends meet.

The only problem is that have not written a word and head to a country retreat at Raphael's sister's place Gigi (Marisa Tomei) to bash out a script in ten days.

When they arrive, writing the screenplay takes a back seat as Dom wants to get it on again with neurotic Gigi a former love, they also get distracted by her friend Ava. Gigi's hostile boyfriend Wayne (Sam Rockwell) arrives with his dim surfer brother which causes more tensions between everyone.

Nothing much happens in this film. You expect the two main characters would be involved in the creative process of taking advantage of a break that has unexpectedly come their way but we get lost in naval gazing between some eccentric characters and then the film ends.

A poor effort with the leads who also wrote the script being uninteresting and shallow characters.
