Our take

Indie director Lynn Shelton scored perhaps her biggest success with this thoroughly thoughtful revision of the love triangle, starring both Emily Blunt and Shelton regular Rosemarie DeWitt. Subversive and sensitive, sweet, and consistently charming—part romantic comedy, part relationship drama.
