Fresh out of college, a young man (Chris Lowell) is left devastated when the girl of his dreams dumps him. Refusing to move on, he devises a plan to transform himself into the man she desires. After resigning himself to working for the head of a company in corporate mediocrity (Clark Gregg), he falls for a hipster songstress (Jessica Szohr) who likes him as he is. As his path continues to unfold unexpectedly, the counsel of a kindred spirit astronomer (Allison Janney) helps him understand how to truly carve out a place in the universe.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: Gives us a story of love among 20-somethings without telling us enough about the main characters to indicate why we should care about their perfectly ordinary entanglements. – Neil Genzlinger, New York Times, Jan 30, 2014

Rotten: Beware any movie that talks about what it is before being what it is. – Robert Abele, Los Angeles Times, Jan 30, 2014

Rotten: It's either much smarter and more profound than it's letting on, or it doesn't add up to anything at all. Or maybe both - it's all relative. – Sherilyn Connelly, Village Voice, Jan 28, 2014

Rotten: Far from burning bright, this earnest indie starts out dull and gets duller. – Joe Neumaier, New York Daily News, Jan 30, 2014
