This was a painful film for me to watch. My parents divorced in my 20s (although not as bitterly as Linney and Daniels) and it deeply scarred me. I recognized/was too familiar with the way Walt and Frank carried themselves emotionally in the film, even though I didn't do exactly what they did. Normally, I'd give this 5 stars, but because it was so personally painful for me to watch it gets 4 stars. Excellent film.
A relatively lacklustre shrug of a divorce tale with a bundle of unlikeable characters (the dad being especially insufferable) firing verbal blanks at one another to no avail as the indie tropes roll in and 80's alt-folk soundtrack plays purely for hipster cred. On the plus side, the cat was adorable & would definitely be my number one claim in a divorce settlement (followed by all the books and the NY townhouse).
