Offers a few laughs, all served up on eyeball-gougingly ugly digital video.

This well-acted film captures a generational and occupational sliver of New York life that rings true.

Schechter made the whole thing for about $50,000, without any A-list names. And yet it's sharper and more entertaining than most of the movies to come out this month at 10 times the budget - or well beyond.

Supporting Characters tends to meander pleasantly from scene to scene, relying on the testy rapport between its two lead actors.

In its sharply etched sketches of personal and professional frissons, Supporting Characters belies the modesty of both its lo-fi setup and its self-effacing title.

Glides from a mildly off-putting opening across several scenes that waver between sitcom superficiality and sudden, unexpected gusts of feeling.
