This a really solid first film and great entry into the comedy world. Alice anchors the film bringing a brave weighty depth echoing all the hopes, fears and delicate frailty of anyone running the gauntlet of pursuing a creative life in their 30's. It's this intimate central performance combined with confident direction that elevates the film from other more forgettable coming-of-age comedies. 3.5 stars
