Myra's character, I think, really anchored the film, and it was because of the strong performance by Alicia Goranson. Myra is an almost impossibly caustic office temp, and I think that a lesser actress might have me wondering how someone with such a firey disposition could work in a field that requires a modicum of working well with others. But Goranson plays Myra with such authority that it just seems natural,
Similarly, the shy, awkward Reggie (David Eigenberg) might have been played as a shallow caricature of a socially-inept dweeb, but Eigenberg creditably shows him to be an earnest, caring, somewhat confused guy trying his best to win what might be the girl of his dreams.
The movie starts with Reggie being smitten with Myra, and Myra's gradual opening to the possibility of dating him. Myra's brother Ludlow is the big complication. He seems to spend most of his time in he and Myra's tiny apartment writing elaborate fairwell notes and fingerpainting.
According to the movie's description, Ludlow is bipolar. I'm no diagonstician, but he seemed a bit more autistic to me-his moods seemed fairly even, but he had definite problems interfacing with the rest of the world and accepting a break in his routine.Read more ›
There aren't many movies I can compare this to, as it's simply such a unique gem in an otherwise bland and overdone genre. To give you a sense of what this movie is like, I'm going to have to pick and choose from different mediums and genres. If you like the dialogue in Joss Whedon's "Buffy the Vampire Slayer", you'll find the witty exchanges in here priceless. If you like the outrageous and endearing characters in Christopher Moore's books, you'll make a place in your heart for Ludlow. If you like sweet, weird, and real romances of the late "Veronica Mars" television series, you'll be rooting for Myra and Reggie. If you're in the mood for a nicely done independent film that will surely make you laugh and just might make you cry, give this not-very-well-known film a chance.

We really enjoyed the movie. It was both sad and sweet! I was surprised by the R rating because it did not deserve that rating (should be PG13)Published on March 17, 2013 by Vicki Mahoney

A slightly screwy love affair, between a man, a woman and the woman's autistic brother (I don't mean in the incestuous, three-way way).
