Movie Info

Former high school sweethearts Jim and Amanda have been out of touch for more than 20 years -- but they run into each other at a grocery store back in their alpine hometown of Crestline, Calif. Jim's mother has died and he's here to put her house on the market. Amanda is visiting her pregnant sister. They get to talking, first over coffee, then over beer and jellybeans. Before they know it they're at Jim's mother's house, where everything sends them spiraling back into the past.

    Incredible film and easily one of the best indie films of that year. Blue Jay benefits from raw performances and those final 15 minutes are tough to watch. Duplass and Paulson are incredible actors, but combining their talents with a filmmaker who has an eye for true performance, is just amazing. The film is beautiful to look at and it is one of those rare films that sneaks up on you, I wished I seen this on release. Believe the hype on this film, it is amazing and further evidence of the stars actng abilities. Treat this as performance art as the cast didn't have a script to work from, the more rewarding part of this film is knowing that. Great film. 05/12/2018.

    Bored the living crap out of me. I normally like b&w and indie films but this... who the hell meets up with an ex, spends all day with them while they?ve got groceries going bad in the car and indulges in fantasy sequences and bad rapping. And don't even get me started on the dramatic reveal. Oh please. How many times do we have to watch that storyline.

    What is most incredible in this profoundly sensitive, mature drama is that there is no script and the wonderful dialogue is entirely improvised, while Duplass and Paulson have such an amazing chemistry together that everything their characters tell each other sounds so real and painful.

    A precious jewel box of a movie. Duplass is very good but Paulson really shines in this improvised two-hander of lost love briefly found and then lost forever,. Very moving and very funny. One of the best movie of 2016 and hardly anyone has seen it. (NF 12-7-16)
