Gloria is an out-of-work party girl forced to leave her life in New York City, and move back home. When reports surface that a giant creature is destroying Seoul, she gradually comes to the realization that she is somehow connected to this phenomenon.
A comedy about loss, grief, and the redemptive power of love. Dean is a NY illustrator who falls hard for an LA woman while trying to prevent his father from selling the family home in the wake of his mother's death.
A workaholic father who attempts to visit his daughter during a layover in LA, only to discover that she's disappeared, is forced to team up with her awkward ex-boyfriend to find her over the course of one transformative night.
This film channels some of the Sideways slice/of-life concept bromance, two friends, one good looking, confident, and shallow, the other friend whose depressing and deep.
Much of the storyline drags like a biography and things get real and serious. Alex has done this role before in film, and somewhat like his character in Girls. Wyatt was new to me, I've seen some bit roles he's done, he kind of did an Owen Wilsonish role, it's hard to belief that anyone is that shallow. Meredith is another character actor, she seemed good in the role, she has a good voice. I saw very little of Melanie Lynskey she's generally a seal of Indie approval. The scene with her was one of the funniest scenes of the film. She didn't get to showcase her full talents.
As for the road trip and male bonding, for what it lacked, it was honest about men's friendship goes a long way, but it's strained around pursuing romantic relationships.
I hope to see more from Jeff Grace who directed and wrote. I enjoyed the originality and good blending. If Jeff could have lined up a few Ryan Bingham, Colin Oberst or Jay Farrah songs and associated cameo this would've been a more enjoyable film
