Offers a few laughs, all served up on eyeball-gougingly ugly digital video.
| Original Score: 2/4
This well-acted film captures a generational and occupational sliver of New York life that rings true.
| Original Score: 3/5
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.

[A] modest but surprisingly deft indie ...

Glides from a mildly off-putting opening across several scenes that waver between sitcom superficiality and sudden, unexpected gusts of feeling.
| Original Score: 3/4
