Nice gentle film
12 December 2018 | by LLgoatJSee all my reviews

This is one of those films that it is more about the people and writing than the plot. The plot is about Fred, the son of a lawyer, who seems to be not taken seriously. He has crippling back pain. He starts dating a client looking to divorce. He also starts getting acupuncture to help his back. The needles play a tune while they are in his back which has an amusing sub-plot ending in his back playing in a five piece band.

Overall I really enjoyed this film. Its a nice gentle comedy drama. Paul Lieberstein (who plays Fred and also played Toby in The Office) really is an underestimated actor. You really do feel his pain and frustration.
