1) There are two titles: Safe Spaces & After Class.
2) Justin Long plays the usual Jason Bateman type pathetic guy who can't whole heartedly stand up behind anything despite clearly knowing what's right and wrong.
3) Some strong family based situations serve as the highlight. The film's guilty of the usual indie shtick of characters blabbering non stop over one another when in group scenarios.
