    Its characters are all too easily determined but never specific—or memorable.

    It's a tepid, quiet and uneventful film, directed almost in slow motion, with no narrative propulsion and with a succession of very similar scenes. The actors speak softly and pause a lot. And in the background is the steady hum of the soundtrack.

Robin Weigert, a very good character actress, has a tough job here. Her lesbian character searches urgently for alternatives that will add excitement/fulfillment while not also costing her the nice life she shares with her spouse and kids. Weigert looks scarily thin and unhealthy – I guess because her character is depressed? – but puts endless energy into her quest. The problem is that early on, you start to worry about whether it’s leading anywhere. Featuring some familiar faces from shows including “The West Wing,” “Mad Men” and “The Walking Dead,” the movie is like a certain kind of short story. It gives you a brief, slice-of-life look at characters you are interested in, but probably won’t remember very long. Full Review »
