Geraghty relies too heavily on facial expressions and mannerisms, but those who appreciate visible effort may be seduced.

The Skinny

What might sound like the set-up for a particularly bawdy Judd Apatow comedy is actually a deceptively sweet tale of twenty-first century alienation.

If you give Geraghty some time, and you give Alvarez some time, you can see that they're getting at something by letting it play out.

Geraghty renders a gutsy, extraordinary portrayal that fully reveals his potential as a sensitive, risk-taking actor with leading-man confidence.

Not much seems to have changed in the world of urban heterosexuals since Hal Salwen's 1995 techno-prophetic classic Denise Calls Up.

Time Out
February 24, 2010
Geraghty's performance is harrowing: Clinging to the phone and tortured by his ecstasy, he weaves empathy out of a flawed loner's dysfunctional fetish.

For any film, let alone a debut, to address difficult subjects with this much insight, humor, and humanity is almost miraculous.

Geraghty's wounded-pup appeal keeps the movie alive even as it heads for a dreary, even-more-implausible-than-the-setup third act. Writer-director Kyle Patrick Alvarez, though, usually finds the right tone and appears to have a promising future.

Davy's experience never plays out precisely as you would expect and I, for one, guessed wrong just about every time right up to the poignant, perfectly-acted finale that does provide some closure while opening up a whole new set of life questions.
