Product Description

There are three women in the Langley household: Vivien (Karen Young), the mother, is caught between a fierce independence and an almost agoraphobic attachment to home; seductive and confident Mel (Portia Reiners) is a 19 year-old mirror of her mother; Maura (Mamie Gummer), 22, is alienated, afraid and unable to pinpoint her place in the world. They live together in a seemingly close household, yet each is very much alone. The family's status quo explodes when Jeff (Jonathan Groff) walks into their comfortable yet dysfunctional world. Bright, handsome, ambitious and sure of his future at 22, he's also socially awkward and a sexual novice who's been infatuated with Mel since high school. When they begin working together at the same restaurant, he jumps at the opportunity to finally start a romance with the free-spirited girl - but Mel has other ideas about their time together.

About the Actor

Jonathan Groff: For the complex, linchpin role of "Jeff," a thoughtful, ambitious yet immature recent college graduate driven by his desires to act in unthinkable ways, Jonathan Groff infuses his character with energy, vulnerability, intelligence and provocative sexuality - just some of the qualities that have already marked him one of the true talents of his generation. Jonathan Groff is quickly emerging as one of the most exciting young talents in the industry. He has joined the cast of the critically-praised hit series, GLEE as the lead male vocalist of the rival glee club, Vocal Adrenaline, as well as being a potential love interest for Lea Michele's character, Rachel.

Portia Reiners: Tackling the role of "Mel," the restless, selfish, and seductive object of Jeff's unrequited affections, Portia Reiners brings honesty, humor and a bold magnetism to the screen. The young actress comes to TWELVE THIRTY after a string of well-received performances on stage, television and film. Reiners began her acting career at seven in a production of Oliver and continued working in theater until the age of ten when she made her first television appearance on ABC's All My Children, one of America's most popular daytime series.

In the pivotal role of "Maura," Mel's timid, embittered, virginal older sister, award-winning young actress Mamie Gummer inhabits her character's violent coming of age with depth and dignity. Born in 1983, Mary Willa "Mamie" Gummer is the eldest daughter of Academy Award-winning actress Meryl Streep and renowned sculptor Don Gummer. But, in the short span since her 2005 graduation from Northwest University, Gummer has already made a distinct name for herself as a talented and versatile actress, performing on stage, television and screen to rave reviews and numerous awards.

Karen Young: Playing the role of "Vivien," Mel and Maura's mother, Karen Young brings wry humor and deep empathy to a woman struggling with a carefree independent streak that has consistently clashed with her role as wife and mother. An actress of range, nuance and beauty, Karen Young has created interesting roles in both independent and big-studio films, television and theater for the past 25 years. She made her film debut in 1983, with a starring role in Handgun, and has since amassed credits in over two dozen feature films, among them Joe the King, Torch Song Trilogy, Criminal Law with Gary Oldman and Daylight with Sylvester Stallone. Of particular note was her critically hailed 2005 performance in Laurent Cantet's Vers le Sud (Heading South) co-starring Charlotte Rampling.

Reed Birney: In the role of "Martin," Mel and Maura's genial estranged father, Reed Birney encompasses all the pleasures and regrets of a man who couldn't embrace his true self until middle-age, leaving his daughters and ex-wife to deal with the fall-out. Born in 1954 in Alexandria, Virginia, Birney is known for his splendid dramatic work in a variety of roles on stage, television and screen. Perhaps most recognizable from roles on the NBC series Kings, Law & Order: CI, Law & Order: SVU, HBO's From the Earth to the Moon and the popular CW show Gossip Girl, his talent and versatility has captivated audiences for over 30 years.

Format: DVD
saw this movie in a screening in which the director Jeff Lipsky was present ad discussed the movie in length afterward. It is a fascinating, left of centre far out art house movie with its own challenges. Jonathan Groff shows he is an interesting film actor with much more to offer than the rather trivial performances he gives on "Glee". He is also a very brave actor partaking in several sex scenes including a very exposing full frontal nude scene and an even more explicit scene with the older Karen Young. Its good to see a young actor fearlessly work in a movie like this and to be unafraid of what he is asked to do by the director.

There was much discussion after the film about whether the director knew about Groff's being the innocent victim of a slur by a journalist who commented that gay actors cant play straight (Groff is out gay and a journo had a swipe at him during the early "Glee"episodes for his playing straight). It was a needless and ridiculous slur , Groff is a fine actor who can play gay or straight I(as he does here) very effectively. Though far from a perfect film, it's one thatis definitely worth a watch.

What a stunning cast, and what a naked film, literally and figuratively. A movie about a mother and a daughter and about a father and a daughter, and a most peculiar young man. A film full of poignance, love, sensuality, fragility -- unconditional love gone awry. I've seen many of the actors on the NY stage and their heady accomplishments in the theatre are exceeded here. Jonathan Groff was the star of "Spring Awakening," Reed Birney in "Blasted," and Barbara Barrie in "Company." And Mamie Gummer, Meryl Streep's daughter, proves that talent is indeed inherited. I had no idea who Portia Reiners was but boy is she a gem and, holy smokes, the camera adores her. Check it out. It's a winner. Some of the most intelligent dialog I've heard in a movie for a very long time.

Bought it for a Jonathan Groff collection I have going. The story is interesting and characters engaging. It has the look of a school project.
