The inability to connect in a hyper-wired world is old news given fresh voice in this tragicomic indie about the way we live.

The movie is unusually attentive to the ironies of communications technology: Note the subtle but definite awkwardness that creeps into the conversation after a prospective girlfriend casually tells Alex that she only checks her e-mail once a week.
