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.
Rotten: Beware any movie that talks about what it is before being what it is.
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.
Rotten: Far from burning bright, this earnest indie starts out dull and gets duller.
This movie is a great coming of age story with solid performance all around by an amazing cast.
I liked it!
It is a simple movie and entertaining. It's short and has a lot of great actors. There's great quotes in there and really makes you think about life.
Really enjoyed this movie. so relatable to my own 20-something life. Can't wait to watch it again!
