The film is incredibly sweet in its overarching theme and scope, however I found the relationship between Melanie Lynskey and Christopher Abbott to be a little too "loose" for my taste in a love story -- almost untouchable, in a way, which bothered me. It has the type of younger-older theme as "The Graduate" (albeit in a much more consensual way), but I did end up wishing something resulted in the end, to my dismay.
