Nice enough little story for a low budget film Nothing new, but good unknown cast make this likeable. Romantic comedy with a lot of angst and a lesbian twist.
An engaging, non-traditional, relationship film that explores what people want in a partner and how expectations can get in the way of what the heart truly wants. The film opens with two couples taking their relationship to the next level and everything looks to be oh so normal and predictable. But a fifth-wheel and series of plot developments soon derail things and the film then takes off in an unexpected direction. What makes it all work, is the natural rhythm and flow of the dialog and the action, a rare accomplishment for a first-time screenwriter. This viewer quickly found himself caring about the characters, especially the two who turned out to be central to the film, and somehow wanted all of it to work out so that everyone could end up happy. But, as in life, that isn't always possible. Emily Peck was radiantly beautiful as Molly, the one who had the most to lose and faced the biggest choice. It helped that she was so good looking as well as talented. The viewer just wanted to see more of her and just wanted her to be happy. Marja-Lewis Ryan, the aforementioned writer, had the meatiest role and carried it off well. Her vulnerability was almost painful to watch at times. The other main characters handled their end more than adequately. The simple, folksy soundtrack meshed perfectly and the camera work was superb. An altogether entertaining film.
