Format: DVD
Another indie that flew under the radar, but without a doubt deserves a watch. The family angst story of two brothers interested in the same woman aggravated by bad dad relations sounds old, but the acting carries through very believably and the DVD quality turned out solid.

The Connecticut locations add a relevant blandness to these characters' dysfunctional relationships and mommy/daddy issues, but Adam Scott shines through in what I would consider his break-out performance (he got some kudos for the lame film August, and usually most recognized as being that bad brother in Step Brothers). Brittany Snow was given some notice for her bold and slightly forward role here, but I think she broke that barrier with On the Doll. I like what everyone showed here, so even though it gets slow a few times and does not explain all of the character outbursts, it should keep the discerning indie viewer entertained.

The picture and sound quality are adequate and showed no real shortcomings. The supplements include:
* Behind the scenes, 16:19 minutes. Director interviews spliced with too much clip footage, but he gives a thorough background on creation and actor support in making this film.
* Deleted scenes, 5 totaling 6:30 minutes. Four of them have optional commentary. Glad they were cut.
* Extended scenes, 5 totaling 16 minutes. Worth the watch if you REALLY liked the acting.
* Two commentaries, one with director solo and one with him and Scott.

English and Spanish subs, 5.1 English only.

I watched this more for J.K Simmons who plays the Father. He is superb as always but it's Adam Scott and Brittany Snow who really carry this picture. I was pretty blown away by Adam Scott in this picture. A superb performance, this guy has to be seen more. Not to give too much away I was expecting this to be more twisted than it actually turned out to be. But if you appreciate acting this is a must see. Only giving it Four as it did feel like it was plodding in places........over all well worth seeing.

This movie is a bit dark, in an edgy, more real way than I expected. Patience for the building of each character layer, worth the wait - and it's only slow the first 20min maybe. A good, different kind of movie.

This movie is easily looked over, but is one that packs a solid punch. Adam Scott, who is now mostly known for comedic roles, plays a grumpy insomniac (Caleb) who is not over a rough break-up. His little brother (Alex) comes to town for Thanksgiving and brings along his girlfriend (Emma). They seem like an odd couple because Alex is a small town, nice guy and Emma is more punk rock. Caleb slowly becomes interested in Emma because she looks exactly like the girlfriend who left him. This movie is great because of the tension between all of the characters, and the complexity of how their lives intertwine in a short time.

This movie is definitely darker than I expected, a little slow, but a good unique movie. I love Adam Scott even more after watching this, but definitely not a feel good movie, if you're into darker indie movies, this is for you.

Format: DVD
Impressive performances by Adam Scott, Brittany Snow, and JK Simmons, and Alex Frost, who seems not to have been in much else, was good in his less nuanced role. I particularly liked seeing Scott and Simmons in dramatic roles, since I have previously only seen them in comedies.

Complex subject. At times I definitely questioned the message about women, but by the end of the movie, it's clear that all of these "betrayers" are equally flawed. Both the acting and great directing made for a movie that struck me as emotionally deep, and also intellectually stimulating. Somewhat depressing yes, but I enjoyed it and didn't come away feeling depressed. Just emotionally moved to a certain degree, and impressed by the acting and directing.

This movie was difficult to get through, but in a good way, if that's imaginable.
I am a ginormous Adam Scott fan and he never disappoints; I genuinely don't understand why he's not more of an A-List, go-to actor. He did an amazing job taking a character that in anyone else's hands would've seemed completely unlikeable and creepy, and made him into a relatable, vulnerable, interesting, and endearing specimen.
Sadly, I felt like Brittany Snow kind of delivered what she normally does - we all know she's a pretty face and can play cute, but going up against a character like Caleb (Scott), you need to be packin' more than that. With that being said, she did a decent job throughout.
Kind of the same goes for J.K. Simmons; he doesn't have a huge part in this film, but I just felt like his character was underdeveloped--in terms of the writing--forcing him to kind of...fall flat? With that being said, I feel like he does a good job depicting how a man in his position would handle the predicaments he's faced with in the flick, specifically toward the end. Once again, a decent performance.
I enjoyed this movie, but chose to give it four, as opposed to five, stars because the writing in it definitely needed/needs some work, and aside from Adam Scott's performance, the movie was kind of lacking in the acting department. Everyone came together on a very 'calm' level, excluding Scott.
If you're looking for a melancholy, dark, mellow movie with a hint of humor, this should definitely be in your list of films to consider. Solid Amazon Instant rental in my opinion!
