Description

Elliot and Annette are a moderately happy, mostly neurotic L.A. couple. Maybe Annette doesn't enjoy game nights or walking as much as Elliot does, but no relationship is perfect, right? At least, that’s what Elliot thinks. Annette, tempted by the possibility of something better, breaks it off and dives into the L.A. dating scene. Annette's best friend Baker is well versed on the bleakness of dating in their city. Her dating history is mostly dotted with failed fix-ups and pointless, lingering affairs with spectacularly awful ex-boyfriends. Together, Annette and Baker begin to wonder if the perfect relationship is anything more than an elusive urban myth.

  • Those people

    These are people without over riding passions, a clear eye for what is allowable, who are not too selfish, but not over generous either. The boat of thier life has turbulence but in time they thrive in the world. It was made for them. The world forgives them and likes thier quotidian conversation. The great lovers and fanatics think these lives are dull but these people don’t think about strenuous feeling. They are employable, moderately likable, and they run everything. These are the people of this film.

    Horrible acting, terrible timing, public-domain soundtrack, zero plot and eye-rolling dialog (Humans don’t talk like this). How does a movie like this find its way onto iTunes, Amazon and Fios? It’s a chore watching writer/director/actor Michelle Morgan doing whatever it is she’s trying to do here.
  • Favorite movie of the year

    The script is so clever, the cinematography is stunning, and the performances are brilliant. I laughed out loud and I cried. Fun to see one of the guys from the Lonely Island in a leading role, too. I can't wait to see more from Michelle Morgan!!
  • Hilarious and Rewatchable

    Went into this film not knowing much - only that it played at Sundance. I was surprised by how frank and funny it was. Felt like an indie film of the 90s. Highly recommend.
  • Honest, deep and hilarious

    This movie is so awesome. A funny, touching perspective on the unique relationships you’d only find in Los Angeles. Brilliant and unique characters. Sharply written and perfectly executed. Watch this movie, you will not regret it!!
