While Messina and Ireland are fine company, writer-director Matt Ross' conceit tires you out.
Dismaying affectations aside-the characters go needlessly unnamed-the movie articulates the enduring allure of a love defined, and heightened, by restrictions.
The intimate romantic drama "28 Hotel Rooms" should prove a fine calling card for its first-time writer-director, Matt Ross.
... one of the movie's points is that when you are cocooned with your lover, intoxicated and infatuated, you don't care much about the rest of the world
The movie's conceit grows a bit stale even with a short running time, and ultimately the whole thing feels more like an acting workshop than a full-fledged human story.
It's an intriguing and well-acted, if gimmicky and repetitive, cinematic experiment that nevertheless feels emotionally detached.
Not sexy, profound or memorable despite heartfelt performances by Chris Messina and Marin Ireland. It's ultimately an exhausting and frustrating affair.
We're supposed to take their self-pity at face value, an impression that's emphasized by a grinding monotonous humorlessness.
A smart, incisive examination of how every love affair eventually comes with strings attached.
