Movie Info

David Warwik is a struggling writer who has been toiling away at the same novel for years. His wife Jennifer is a hot young literary figure, who has just released a new masterpiece. When her publisher invites the couple to an artists' salon at his home in Connecticut, the pair embark on a twisted journey, and David must face his demons and try to "not be weird" among the waspy salon guests and competitive art set in attendance. He encounters a dentist with publishing aspirations, a book critic full of condescending advice, a fellow writer who may know his wife a little too well, an old "friend," and a high powered bipolar literary agent who just might be able to help him...for a price.

Critic Reviews for Fits and Starts

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (2)

A low-key comedy of errors whose leads' underplayed oomph bolsters the uneven scenario.

November 22, 2017 | Full Review…

While it certainly has its moments, it remains frustratingly one-note, too cool to really commit to the screwball farce the premise is crying out for, and too enamored with picking off easy targets to draw real blood.

Fits and Starts is an entertaining but forgettable tale of two married writers trying to find middle ground.

October 10, 2018 | Rating: 5.5/10 | Full Review…

The director displays a firm control of all the elements in this, her first feature, promising, we hope, even greater cinematic treasures to come.

Fits and Starts is a hilarious interpretation of modern artistry.

December 6, 2017 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Fits and Starts sometimes seems unable to handle character, story, and motivation at the same time.
