    I wanted to watch this movie b/c I am a filmmaker so I was very excited to watch an undiscovered little indie gem.

    Needless to say I was very disappointed. While the cinematography was excellent the film itself was very boring.

    The sound was kind of bad too. They would often speak so softly that I couldn't hear them and then the very next scene would have ridiculously loud montage music. The music was very good and went with the film, however, it was so loud that I kept having to change the volume while watching it.

    The main problem with the film was the writing. I did not care about the main character or a majority of the characters in the film. It's hard to get into a film when you don't care for the characters. "Warren" was kind of a jerk + he wasn't good looking enough to act this way and get away with it. I couldn't imagine a world where his "love interest" would even be the slightest bit interested in a below average looking guy with nothing to offer who was this unlikable.

    For the entire movie I just kept waiting for something to happen, and eventually it did. It ended. I just didn't care about the main characters. It feels like it was written by a 25 year old that thought he was a lot smarter than he actually is. The only redeeming quality about his film is the shots of the beautiful city it was shot in, Chicago.

    Other than that, nada. I have no idea why this film had "stars" attached to it. Unless they got paid a ton, there was no reason for anyone to read this script and think "Wow, this is something I need to be in!"

    Alex Beh wrote, directed, and stars in this low-key indie, set in Chicago. Beh portrays Warren, a young man working in a coffee shop and, at times, joining his friends on stage for improv comedy. His father Jack,(the late John Heard) and his mother Claire (Jean Smart) are divorcing after a long separation and their home, which has been sold, is going to be torn down.

    Warren is rather frustrated and lost and a part of him longs to move away and start anew somewhere else. However,when his ex-girlfriend Emma (Sarah Habel) suddenly appears in his coffee shop, it will rekindle all the old feelings of their former relationship. She's moved from New York back to Chicago and is about to be married.

    Warren still feels, though, that there's still something between them and Emma also is again drawn to him emotionally. Things will all eventually come to a head and the ending may not be what you're expecting.

    Overall, this indie seems to have too many "balls in the air" and never really congeals into a tale that I could involve myself with its characters. In other words, it's all over the place and I felt the script was just not sharp enough.

    The movie does have an excellent musical soundtrack. To note, there were no subtitles on my DVD copy and I had to use the closed caption option on my remote.
