Drama, Comedy, Latino Director(s)
Stalled in a long-term committed relationship that seems to be going nowhere, Dianne (Olivia Thirlby) and Henry (Ben Feldman) feel pressure to marry, abandon their bohemian lifestyle in Los Angeles and move to the burbs. As the nuptials approach, both feel the temptation to stray, setting in motion a series of cataclysmic events. Separately, they treat themselves to a night on the town, discovering that they are capable of surprising things—good and bad.

This sophomore feature from writer/director Rafael Palacio Illingworth is remarkably self-assured, drawing upon a wide range of influences from John Cassavetes to YouTube. Illingworth elicits strong supporting performances from Adam Goldberg, Analeigh Tipton, Peter Bogdanovich and Lesley Ann Warren as he weaves into this tale of love in the modern age all the fickleness, mundanity, pettiness, and moments of unexpected passion that come with long-term relationships.
