| Dramedy Only Partially Successful
Dimitri Martin writes, directs, and stars here as Dean, who is an illustrator and writer trying to cope with the recent loss of his mother. He's also struggling in his relationship with his father Robert (Kevin Kline), who is also finding his own ways of grieving his loss.

With work on his next book blocked by his sadness, Dean decides to travel from Brooklyn to Los Angeles to meet with a ad agency who have expressed interest in his drawings. While there, Dean will hook up with some old friends like Eric (Rory Scovel) and Becca (Briga Heelan), as well as meeting a new woman Nicky (Gillian Jacobs).I thought the scenes with his friends and Nicky worked well and were often heartfelt and humorous. However, other parts of this movie seemed awkward and flat, so a mixed bag overall.

All in all, I thought this rather quirky and oddball dramedy, employing lots of deadpan humor, was only partially successful.
