What begins as an absorbing exercise in glum atmosphere turns mild, meek, and desperate as the stakes rise.
A modest, uneven example of regional American independent film. But it has tremendous heart and integrity...
Emotionally manipulative and problematic...
Doesn't miss many clichés of small-town, working-class, going-nowhere life.
Implausibilities mount, and by the last act Lerner appears to have lost any compunction he might have had about using his protagonist to tug the audience's heartstrings.
Understated, well-acted and likely never to be heard from again, Girlfriend is the kind of movie you come to film festivals to see.
Shooting in his hometown of Wayland, Massachusetts, Lerner has a keen sense of class and setting. And despite some narrative miscues, Sneider's performance keeps him honest.
It is an affecting and special film, and Justin Lerner emerges from it as a name to remember.
Despite its somewhat contrived turn of events, Girlfriend manages to be genuinely endearing with beautiful cinematography and a heartfelt, raw performance by newcomer Evan Sneider
Girlfriend is surprisingly backward not only in the story that entangles its main character, but also in its characterization of women.
