    The Duplass brothers keep making miniatures that contain universes. They seem to be casual, but they're dead serious. They seem to be stumbling around finding stories by accident, but their movies are thematically rigorous. They seem to be presenting matters of little consequence, but the stakes are always huge and life-changing. show more

    Sarandon is worth leaving home for, even if Jeff won't. show more

    I loved it. It was one of those movies that leaves you smiling. The movie came together beautifully at the end. Definitely watch it :)

    4.5 stars. this was not a movie that would appeal to those who like ridiculously pretty actors with formulaic plots.

    If you like corny sentiment, and worse than average cinematography, you\'ll love this flick. Not surprised that Sarandon is in it, as the \'message\' fits her \'schtick\' and of course, she\'s her very beautiful and accomplished self. The acting was really confident and well done, but the \"follow signs\" nonsense is such sophomoric mush that I felt totally ripped off by the admission price. I should have followed the \'sign\' that said if Sarandon likes the script, move on to almost anything else.
