Review: I really enjoyed this movie. Sorta low key, more of an indie vibe. If you’re in any kind of transient state in your life, relationship-wise, job-wise, whatever… if you’re just one of us who feels derailed… lost… pressured…. check out this movie. It’s not gonna change your life but it’s really enjoyable and helps with perspective. Hat’s off to Jenna, great project choice and excellent execution. Well cast. Astonishingly, this movie deals with depressing issues, most likely to be viewed by depressed people, and it pulled off something that they rarely ever do, especially in the world of indie film, it doesn’t make you feel depressed, not once it’s concluded at least.
