    Though their resolution is a little too neat to be believed, the filmmakers' way with their cast makes this debut a promising one.

    The array of TV veterans assembled for the film don’t necessarily do anything wrong, and their charisma sometimes translates from small screen to big, but, as is so often the case with the indie dramedy, an unrealistic script lets down a talented cast.
