About the Movie
Married couple Jim and Lucy (Keith Poulson, Deragh Campbell) run a commune in the early 90's for sober living out of their suburban New Jersey home. The motley members eat, bathe and work together selling homemade "health tea" out of their van. Although there's constant bickering and plenty of fires to be put out, Jim and Lucy have managed to establish a haven for these outcasts. But the harmony is interrupted when Ann (Hannah Gross), a recovering addict and the ex-lover of one housemate, arrives. Ann's insidious presence sends the members spiraling out of control, resulting in paranoia, drug relapse and eventually death.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Mr. Silver gets credit for raising the stakes with each sinewy new film, from the adolescent apathy of "Exit Elena" (2013), all the way to this film's unholy sobriety program.
Fresh: Those who stick out its short-and-sour duration, however, will note a deepening timbre in Silver's already distinctive storytelling voice, as he deftly balances curdled comedy with candid humanism.
Rotten: When one of the troubled figures runs fleeing from the stifling environs, it's hard for the viewer not to feel a touch of envy.
Fresh: The actors' agile reflexes keep scenes unpredictable as their characters react to passive-aggressive slights or terrifying paroxysms of rage.
