A good depiction of depression and the seemingly random choices that are made.,

This review is from: Hello I Must Be Going [HD] (Amazon Instant Video)
I'm sure it will get compared to Silver Linings Playbook but it is not as good. While SLP has the Hollywood happy ending it is also more realistic. I'm a little tired of watching rich people cope with their problems. I know their problems are the same but it's hard to care about a poor little rich girl.
The movie is well acted and Melanie Lynskey is great but the whole resolution at the end felt like a film school project. In spite fo all this, I liked it because of Lynskey's performance and felt it was compelling.
Four stars seems a bit much but according to Amazon, it means only that "I like it," which is true.
