Fun and insightful indie flick!

This film was truly enjoyable to watch. Great storyline, strong main character (Franklin) and a fun and quirky roommate. I felt a strong authenticity throughout the film with its location and the unfolding of the film's story. The further along I watched, the more I got sucked into the emotions the film provoked. It really had an excellent crescendo all the way to the end. This is a perfect kick back and enjoy (maybe with a glass of wine) indie flick for that chilling out evening.
