About the Movie
Once a promising young chef, Charlie (Freddie Highmore "The Good Doctor") is now an unmotivated twenty-something who lives at home with his mom (Marg Helgenberger, "CSI") and stepfather while working at a movie theatre and living vicariously through his friend, Ben (Haley Joel Osment, "Silicon Valley.") His life takes an unpredictable turn however, when he finds himself falling for local barista Amber (Odeya Rush, "Goosebumps," "Lady Bird.") Problem is, Amber has her own distractions- her mooching roommate (Jake Abel, "Love & Mercy,) a track star boyfriend (Taylor John Smith, "You Get Me") and steadfast plans to move to New York. On top of that, Charlie's estranged father (Christopher Meloni, "Law & Order: SVU") unexpectedly re-enters his life just as he begins to take a long, hard look at where he's going and who he wants to be. With conflict after conflict piling on, will Charlie reach his tipping point or will he finally find the path forward?

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: A comic drama that's sometimes appealingly gentle but more often frustratingly amorphous.
Best movie I've seen lately. Rent it or buy it no regrets.
Kind of predictable and slow moving but still entertaining . Always like Freddie Highmore in his films. Some of you might think it is a great film and some will be bored. It would be better at 5.99 $ than 6.99$
Should Be A TV Movie Of The Week
I agree with a review written here that's "kind of predictable and slow movie", yet I thought it was good, down to the earth people and feelings. I was shoked to notice how different "I see dead people" kid has become, as an adult.
