    The film benefits from nice performances and nice work by Mr. DiFolco (making his directorial debut), even if the ending is not as psychologically complex as earlier scenes lead us to hope.

    This static, talky effort ultimately doesn’t justify its feature-length running time despite some strong performances and the occasional moving moment.

    The film's delivery system sets itself up for failure.
