The summary does a good job of explaining the plot without giving too much away. So how is the experience of watching it? First the good - Atmosphere is cool, and the movie doesn't dwell too long on each scene so there's a nice forward momentum to the story. Characters are interesting, and even though the film focuses mainly on the lead the other characters can be pretty realistic and non-cliché. Finally, the movie is fresh in that you don't often see female leads who are getting into these kind of weird depressive aggressive states. Coming off of 7 Chinese Brothers you kind of get reminded about how many indie films have guys in the lead.

Now the bad. As another review states the film does drag in the second half, and the start of the issues possibly begin in the bedroom scene (just after the halfway mark). In this scene the lead character (who might have been the victim of rape in the past) opens up to someone else. She goes onto say 'As a woman you're constantly objectified and discredited for anything you do because you're female', and 'just because you're a girl gives men the right to do whatever they want to you, because they (men) are selfish and exploitative'. Aside from being completely false, this kind of stereotyping of entire genders isn't recognized as a problem in the film, and if the film had explored the trauma that could lead a person to these kind of views it would have been balanced, but it never does. So what all this means is that the film doesn't go to places it should have (kind of like another recent film called 'Dirty Weekend' with an elderly Matthew Broderick questioning but never actually questioning his sexuality).

There are probably other minor things I missed, but those should cover the main elements. Worth a watch - maybe.
