Who says an indi-film can't be a run of the mill soap opera? That's pretty much what we get here in this brief (85 minutes) look at sexual desires, infidelity and questionable morality. The best thing director/writer Ry Russo-Young ("You Won't Miss Me") has going for her is the cast.

John Krasinski stars as Peter, a Hollywood sound technician who is married to Julie (Rosemarie DeWitt), a therapist. Julie has a teenage daughter (India Ennenga) who has a crush on her step-dad's assistant (Justin Kirk). A twenty- something documentarian named Martine (Olivia Thirlby) shows up to get some help with special effects and sound for her film about bugs.

Martine is a friend of a friend and once Peter first meets Martine, everybody's hormones kick into high gear. Like all good soaps we've got the hunky ex-hubby (Dylan McDermott) coming around for dinner. We've got Julie accepting flirtatious advances from a patient. The daughter has her eyes on the assistant and the assistant is goo-goo for Martine and Martine for Peter. Whew!

While there is at least one scene of a sexual nature, nothing is overly graphic and little skin is ever shown. The script is OK and while I was buying all the coy looks for a while it just started to get a bit silly. While the film has its moments, it will likely be forgotten pretty quickly.

I could go into a lot of detail, but I just don't feel it's necessary. Not when this one point kind of sums everything up: who, in god's name, would say something like, "You betrayed me!" in real life?

If someone said this directly to me, as in the context of this movie (i.e., supposed sexual betrayal), or really any context, I would laugh. Because no matter how dramatic my life has gotten (Ooh, I'm starting to get older and I have a teenager and pre-teen via my marriage to someone with kids, so I should probably cheat on my spouse with someone younger and more passionate than me in a sad, sad attempt to recapture my 20s, and when, in a shocking turn of events, that same temptress isn't that serious about me and doesn't even attempt to understand how serious this is for me, I will throw a tantrum that shows, not only am I selfish and deluded, I'm also not really mature enough to have kids, let alone sex), I refuse to be around people who talk like this. People who speak in a way that makes it seem as if their life is so important and serious that it requires dramatic words like betrayal. Unless you're accidentally sleeping with your mother, and thus are betrayed by fate, or have found yourself in some Shakespearean coup to take over your kingdom, please don't talk about betrayal. Let's just assume the audience can figure something like that out implicitly through the characters' actions.

Good sex scene though.

A very hot mess. I kept thinking it would get better and was curiously trying to hang in there. I understand some of the subtle messages, and on that level it could have been good if pursued. But as it is, a very slow, boring film. Didn't connect with the characters or care about any of them - least of all Martine. I should have walked rather than watched.

This is an honest look at normal, every-day people, living their inter-connected lives. They messing it up and, in some cases fix it and then continuing to live their life. It's not great and it's not bad...it's just fine.

The motion picture begins with Martine (Olivia Thirlby), a pint-sized Liza Minnelli type, who postures herself as an experimental filmmaker from Hells Kitchen, arrives @ LAX. Within the airport’s parking structure a guy only known as Dude, who appears to be an acquaintance of hers, tries to take her pants down before driving her to Silverlake. Is this Dude’s attempt @ conceptual art? Who knows?

Next we’re in a classroom with sweet little 16-year-old Kolt (AKA Seahorse) played by India Ennenga—who had a significant role in HBO’s award winning series: ‘Treme’. Kolt recites a fragment of her “victim poetry” to the class, “Every day I say drive away, I’m reaching back for you. It’s a helpless feeling…” Her enraptured teacher proclaims, “Sylvia Platt would be proud!”

Martine arrives in Silverlake and is met by sound artiste Peter. Disappointed Dude takes his leave.

Suddenly we’re in a psychiatrist’s office with a smiling doctor that looks a lot like Tom Hanks wife and a self-indulgent guy who looks like a 1950s teen idol time traveler. He’s slouched on the sofa unspooling all of his dirty thoughts about her until the session thankfully ends.

Inside the house Peter (John Kransinski) and Martine are watching a black & while film on a very professional looking Moviola set-up, starring a couple of bored scorpions. This is the film she flew 3,000 miles for? More hip dialog: Peter, “What would it sound like if you could hear the bug’s heartbeat?” Matine, “Or it’s heartache. What would that sound like?” And on it goes.

At the entrance to Peter’s Silverlake home the attractive psychiatrist now appears. She’s revealed to be Peter’s wife Julie (Rosemarie DeWitt), who also played a continuing character in the ‘Madmen’ series).
