Despite her script's omissions - we learn little about where these affluent people come from, their occupations or how they know one another - Ms. DuVall juggles the emotional dynamics with fluid editing and light comic touches.

The script wobbles between heavy-handed and touching, but the result is a pleasantly nostalgic throwback that's saved from its copy-cat tendencies by charismatic actors.

If DuVall's purpose was to provide a snapshot of her generation, she should have sharpened her focus.

As an unfussy, dryly amusing and sincere look at men and women pondering emotional pivots in their lives, it's plenty likable.

Wanders from scene to scene until arriving at some pretty implausible conflict resolution.

It's more engrossing to just hang out with the characters in all their damaged glory, before the plot marches through the room with its clunkiest boots on.
