Cat (Krista Bridges) has a mediocre job, a mundane social life and her relationship with Freddy (Enrico Colantoni) has been, well...uninspired. Enter Richard (David Cubitt), Freddy's boss. Charming, gregarious, astute, and shockingly self-confident, he promises to be everything Freddy is not. Cat and Richard's brief encounter evolves into an affair. Overwhelmed by her own guilt, however, she breaks it off to make a final, sincere attempt to reignite the flame with Freddy with a romantic trip to wine country. Nothing, however, can prepare Cat for what happens when she finds out Richard - accompanied by his perky, perfect young girlfriend, Amy (Brooke Palsson) - is joining them. Written by Alessandra Piccione

Romantic and charming exploration of our relationships with others, ourselves and our dreams.
15 September 2017 | by susanspanoSee all my reviews

A deliciously charming,character driven heartfelt story. Beautifully filmed and directed. The cast is excellent. I appreciate the unique qualities each actor brought to the film. I felt it was a perfectly balanced exploration of life's complicated relationships with one another as well as with ourselves. Worth watching.
