Easier With Practice reveals the sense of loneliness and isolation that permeates modern life and the lure of fantasy in filling its emptiness.

Geraghty's wounded-pup appeal keeps the movie alive even as it heads for a dreary, even-more-implausible-than-the-setup third act. Writer-director Kyle Patrick Alvarez, though, usually finds the right tone and appears to have a promising future.

Easier With Practice is an intimate drama about a fledgling author with a sensitive soul.

Love stories don't come much squirmier than this one, and Alvarez plays it with honesty, insight, and the awkwardness inherent in this blindest of blind dates.

Just because a story is true doesn't mean it's interesting.

Movie Dearest

Geraghty renders a gutsy, extraordinary portrayal that fully reveals his potential as a sensitive, risk-taking actor with leading-man confidence.

Geraghty's performance is harrowing: Clinging to the phone and tortured by his ecstasy, he weaves empathy out of a flawed loner's dysfunctional fetish.

Alvarez's sincere, probing look at male inexperience creates a modest but bold contrast to the age of snark. His shock of recognition is a humanist landmark.

The weird turns that Davy's life takes always feel emotionally honest, thanks in no small measure to Geraghty's achingly true performance.

Not much seems to have changed in the world of urban heterosexuals since Hal Salwen's 1995 techno-prophetic classic Denise Calls Up.
