  • From time to time the movie grabs you (though the music keeps repelling you). Taking stock and letting go-of superfluous things, of worn-out love-is a strong theme. But the progression of the script is like Nick's self-help program. We're familiar with the steps. show more

  • This is an indie film with big stars - but also an indie films with big ideas about bringing real people to life. show more
