I caught this terrific movie at LA Film Fest in 2015, glad to see it's getting distribution. The film features fantastic performances from the leads Amy Hargreaves, Matt McGorry and the ensemble cast. And its always great to see veteran character actor Mark Blum. It was beautifully shot (made me miss NYC), scored and confidently written and directed by Marc Meyers. This is a grown-up film about grown-ups. Full disclosure, I have known and worked with the director. Its been wonderful to watch him to grow into the assured filmmaker that brought about this work. This film is everything we love about independent film. Bravo and highly recommend!
