Well-made in all respects,with honesty and a startling turn from Sam Rockwell to recommend it, but it just screams "indie movie" and the story seems to made up entirely out of cliches from the "things that will get your movie into Sundance" Well-made in all respects,with honesty and a startling turn from Sam Rockwell to recommend it, but it just screams "indie movie" and the story seems to made up entirely out of cliches from the "things that will get your movie into Sundance" checklist. Storywise there are no real surprises, and if the ending isn't obvious from the first act, it becomes jarringly so about halfway through. Expand
