| Super realistic emotional journey! Fantastic directing and acting
This movie is a gem for an indie lover like me. The simplicity of the story allowed focus on the complex and nuanced layers of the characters. Quite understated in its presentation, the film allowed us to fully digest each of the completely moving scenes. In each scene, there were so many feelings that resonated with me. This movie had a similar unrequited love theme that is found throughout the indie film landscape, but it still came across as fresh and compelling. The actor's chemistry was strong, though it took a few scenes to kick into gear. As a big fan of character movies, this one delivers on every level.

While AmyAmy Hargreaves, in her quirky, super appealing, and unpredictable realization of the character was particularly engaging, I felt the most important scenes in the film were delivered brilliantly by the jilted husband played by Mark Blum. Blum was absolutely perfect in every scene and had the gravity to pull the other actors into a heightened drama.

The smallness of this production was also refreshing and intimate. I love when films don't feel slick and over-rehearsed. I would have given this film a 10, were it not for a certain overly-sharp character shift of Amy Hargreaves in a scene set in the morning. But I will overlook that because the rest of the film was working so well. They say 90% of a director's job is casting. I bet that was the case in this excellent film, too. Bravo to everyone involved in this movie.
