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.

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!
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.
