review by
Mike Haberfelner

The suicide of her brother Dominick (Tony Gapastione) sent Charlene (Allison Ewing), a moderately successful actress and fledgling writer quite a bit over the edge, so much so that her husband, a psychotherapist no less, has temporarily moved out of their house, taking the children (Amina Attard, Ava Gulick) with him - which does of course little to improve Charlene's rather unstable state. However, she tries to pack her experiences and the whole story about her brother's death into a screenplay which she tries to sell to producers - but generally her script is seen as too dark, and rewrite after rewrite don't make it any brighter - and of course, well-meant bad advice from anyone she knows does't make things any better, and that in turn doesn't lift her spirits either. So she pretty much tries to find herself between her Jesus-loving but church-hating mother (Alley Mills), a fellow writer-actress (Maral Milani), who seems to succeed in everything Charlene fails at due to her good looks, her slightly dim but loyal friend Dino (Cameron James Matthews), her pregnant sister-in-law (Kayla Robinson) who has designs on Dino, her bossy but benign agent (Krystina Jackson) - and quite a few too many weed-laced brownies ...


A very unusual yet highly worthwhile blend of drama and comedy that tries and succeeds in treating some very serious topics - as in suicide and grief - with a certain twinkle in the eye. That's all thanks first and foremost to a cleverly written script that might not follow a traditional three-act structure too strictly but consists of many a strong scene that feel to rather naturally alternate between comedic and dramatic and that come across as very organic and real. And a strong cast playing well fleshed-out characters carries the film rather beautifully, making this a pretty awesome watch.
