A Very Good Movie
21 April 2016 | by usclewisSee all my reviews

First off, it's always nice to see a film about L.A. that looks like it is set in L.A. -- especially when it doesn't feature celebrities that take you out of the illusion.

It's also nice to see a well-written, mature film about adults that doesn't resort to clichés or sensationalism (excessive sex, violence, cursing, etc) to tell it's story. This is a story about friendships and choices, and discovering what is real in life.

As someone who has visited Echo Park many times in the past, this movie feels like a true L.A. story: these are the kinds of movies I'd like to see made more often, whether about Los Angeles specifically, or about relationships in general.
