A beautiful set of stories in need of more love
NetFlix has decided well to give Swanberg a series of short stories. Although much better done, this movie reminds me of the usual European Art movie.

There is the story of the main character. Which goes nowhere. It's a sketch. 30 minutes would have been way too much for it. Yet it is blown to some 45 minutes.

Than there is the story of the younger character. Which is not a younger main character. It is a different story entirely with different issues.

Than there is some mandatory preaching about ecology. Or high tech as perceived by someone with an education in Humanities. And those are from another movie altogether.

And if the larger story goes nowhere, it would have been unfair to have any of the shorter stories go anywhere either, somehow like the second daughter can't get married till the first born daughter is given to some male.

The acting is good. The scenes are so natural and well felt. The light is not unpleasant like in most Mumblecore movies.

And why the often change in backdrop? Yes, it can be there to show how a woman goes out of her zone of comfort to have sex at the partner's home. But all these stories could have happened in the same place: the upstairs home and the downstairs beach linked not by a staircase, but by sand.
