Plot Summary

Officially an adult but locked into a perpetual phase of arrested development, an aimless twentysomething attempts to make sense of his go-nowhere life after being dumped by his girlfriend and forced to move back home with his parents. Art may still be far from mid-life, but no one can deny that he's having a crisis. When his attempts at establishing himself as a sensitive singer/songwriter fail, Art dips into his inheritance money in order to experiment with a variety of new-age therapies and hire an eccentric self-help guru. Gradually, Art begins to make sense of the dysfunctional relationship he shares with his frustrated parents, and understand the unique role he plays in his small but close-knit social circle.

Customer Reviews

Incredible Work of Art (no pun intended)

I haven't seen Twilight. I'm a straight teenage guy, not girl. Now that that is out of the way can I say that Robert Pattinson is an incredible actor? This movie is extremely funny, thought provoking, well-done, encouraging, and even life-changing. As a poet-songwriter myself with some of the same concerns as Art in the movie, this film really spoke to me. If Indie films, music, or real living are your thing then I highly recommend this movie. Watch it. Now.

Epic Indie Film

twilight fans go away [: This movie is an indie film with substance it lacks some originality but to me Rob made his character really pop out it shows that if your in your twenty's moving back isn't so bad but is it worth the emotional dramatic theme of life?


Robert Pattinson is an amazing actor. He shows that he is more then just a vampire in twilight and then is is a really good actor. Good job Rob :)!
