Trivia

The bottles of beer in front of Fenton and Layla at the restaurant when their father takes them out is Duvel, a slightly sweet Belgian beer with 8.5% alcohol by volume. It is considered somewhat sacrilege to drink it out of the bottle as Layla does as like many Belgian beers, it has its own special glass in which it is supposed to be served to maximize all the characteristics of the beer when drinking it.

Chronically Metropolitan is the new Tragically Hip
20 June 2017 | by smoke0See all my reviews

Everything that happens in this film is right off the "indie quirky cute funny sad happily ever after wealthy dysfunctional family drama" checklist.

While the story line is unfailingly familiar, the characters are played by mostly engaging actors and the film doesn't bog down in any one place for too long so you are able to watch to the end without getting bored or surprised.

This film was described in one blurb as clever and cynical, and maybe it was back in the '70s, but now it's just tame and typical.
