Despite two very ap pealing leads in Jason Ritter and Jess Weixler, Jay DiPietro's bittersweet romantic comedy Peter and Vandy is yet another graduate of Sundance's Class of '09 that doesn't live up to its initial promise.
The movie's saving grace is Weixler, who manages to seem effortlessly natural without resorting to whiny faux naturalism. As she did in Teeth, Weixler grounds an otherwise glib conceptual exercise through the force of her presence.
Peter and Vandy implements the time-shuffling love story with more poetic technical aplomb than any other film this year, but its flaws inadvertently fashion a cogent argument against the formula as well.
