Editorial Reviews


"'This remarkable film, at once clear-eyed and emotional, personal yet unsparing, is a model of what independent films can achieve. Incisive, heartfelt and painfully funny.' Los Angeles Times. 'Beautfully written and heartfelt. A wonderfully perceptive character study.' Chicago Tribune." --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

Format: Paperback
The simplistic sytle which Baumbach delivers the plot and dialouge is unmatched to others in many respects. It is a very quick read.
