Offering a British twist on the mumblecore genre, writer/director Alex Barrett's debut feature doesn't lack bravery.
Although this introspective British film tackles themes that are rarely addressed on screen, its microscopic budget and inexperienced cast and crew make it very difficult to engage with.
There are times when it grows on you but those awkward, lingering silences and some wooden performances conspire to make it challenging viewing.
Gogglingly boring and appallingly acted: if this is east London's answer to mumblecore, god help us.
Thoughtful, affable, unfashionably angsty shoestring debut about young Londoners figuring stuff out in their post-college years.
Writer/director Alex Barrett's feature debut settles for rites-of-passage ensemble drama in a Bergman mould, but its stilted, awkward dialogue hardly improves upon the audible lines of the film-within-a-film critiqued in that opening scene.
An unimaginative and quite frankly dull British drama about a group of friends whose day-to-day lives are just not interesting enough to hold a feature film together.
Writer/director Barrett delivers a promising debut that pitches four believable characters into the euphoria and dismay of post-uni life.
Pretensions toward Scandinavian arthouse territory (one character reads existential philosophy and is tormented by visions of St Francis) sit awkwardly.
Alex Barrett's feature debut gets caught between placing itself within the context of bigger questions of the meaning of life with the smaller demands of looking for a job after graduating.
