    Evan Dando as the boyfriend does all the sensitive-right things but is phony-wrong for her; not sure if the movie is like him; good lighting & music

    A very special, simple and emotional film. You'll be bored though... 54/100

    I don't really like Liv Tyler and Pruitt Taylor Vince makes me shudder, so I found very little to like about this movie. There was absolutely nothing special about it. I almost don't even remember watching it, it was so nondescript. Instead of watching this, just stare at a blank wall and invent a movie in your head.
