A tangled web of a movie which draws the viewer in with few hints as to how it will unfold. Covers all sorts of modern day themes such as love, loneliness, unwanted celebrity status, loss, humour...
The characters are fully developed and you get to understand and empathise with their backstory which is quite important to the plot.
There is no doubt the director and writers have quite a bit of fun with the audience but never at their expense. The film looks at events over a few days from the viewpoint of 3 of the protagonists in quite a successful manner.
Quite a lovely "little" story of everyday life and love.
