A beautiful little film - held together by great performances and dark (yet still quirky) humour. Certainly not revolutionary, but the gentle, naturalistic style and vague time period make for an authentic slice of middle-class modern-world disenfranchisement and the search for happiness. The relationship between the despicable and pathetic leads blossoms into quite a warm story.
Just saw this at the Lighthouse Fest in Jersey and must say I was pleasantly knocked out. The performances were more deeply moving than to be expected,and,with maybe one exception,the actors and writer/director never once betray the characters complex humanity or integrity. And never insult the viewers intelligence, which can be rare in "indie" comedies. I wish the cast and director a bright future. So much fun!
