I just wish Unlovable had developed its own unique voice and approach rather than seeming too much like dozens of other forgettable addiction-themed motion pictures.

Nov 2, 2018 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

A lack of psychological depth probably isn't fatal for a lite get-your-act-together dramedy, but it might've made this hard-to-love protagonist easier to at least care about.

"Unlovable" is the rare indie film that gets just the right level of twee.

A young woman who loves not wisely but too much gets a shot at redemption in an excellent dramedy drawn from the real-life experiences of lead player Charlene deGuzman.

It's a fluffy spin on the recovery genre, but it's a fresh one, and deGuzman's hard-won life experience adds veracity and honesty to the snappy narrative.

Love. Sex. When we hear addiction we immediately associate it with alcohol or drugs...right? Love and sex can be just as addictive and damaging to one's life, self-esteem and those who inhabit that person's world.
