Movie Info

Writer/director Adam Park made his feature film debut with this romantic comedy-drama that shifts between several characters' points of view. Max (James LeGros) is a projectionist at an art/revival theater in New York who one days meets Elizabeth (Jennifer Beals), a veterinarian at a neighborhood animal clinic. The attraction between them is immediate, and several months later Max hands Elizabeth a small box. Overcome with emotion, she is convinced it's an engagement ring...until she opens it

There's nothing to distinguish writer-director Adam Park's otherwise routine story or execution.

Too often wanders into unnecessary silliness, and the ending leaves something to be desired.
