An engaging look at a pair of New York couples whose love lives intersect, crisscross, circle and backtrack in hip and provocative ways.

Strong acting and occasional dives into deeper territory redeem this somewhat contrived chamber piece.

Deadly earnestness and sex don't mix well at the movies.

August 16, 2013 | Rating: 1/4 | Full Review…

Romantic confusion and youthful insecurity drive "The Happy Sad," a New York relationship roundelay as restless as the city itself.
