Whittaker is real and likeable, and there are some very funny lines.
I can't imagine a person experienced with offbeat English-language films of the last ten years not seeing much that's familiar in Adult Life Skills, but it's a lovely movie with some very good performances and it makes some very good choices.
A cheesy rehash of numerous stunted-adolescent dramedies.
Funny and touching dramedy about arrested development and struggling with loss.
Surrounded by a solid supporting cast and making the most of a few memorable lines, Whittaker's skills help lift what would otherwise be just a solid, unspectacular drama.
Knock a star off if you're feeling cynical, but otherwise surrender to this fun, funny, spirited debut.
Adult Life Skills is an assured and engrossing debut from Rachel Tunnard that deserves to find an audience.
"Funny and touching. . .(Whittaker) is bereft over death of her twin. . . Sprightly screenplay. . . it is not a Prince Charming, but women in her life who unite to revive her. "
Anna shares DNA with the men-children of the Apatow oeuvre and yet Adult Life Skills is a unique specimen.
Expanded from writer/director Rachel Tunnard's Bafta-nominated short, the film itself feels hopelessly stretched.
Employs an engaging, if sometimes strained blend of quirky comedy and mawkish melodrama to explore the emotional state of a 29-year-old striving to reconcile the loss of a beloved twin brother with the need to get on with her own life.
Tunnard has a distinctive directorial voice - it will be interesting to see what she does next.
