Review by

This is one of those intense, character-driven independent debuts which do well at film festivals and arthouses but usually fail to capture a mass audience. That's too bad, because this one is better than most, despite an imbalance between the funny first half and the black, rage-filled conclusion. Liev Schreiber, Parker Posey, and Anne Meara all turn in first-rate performances, and while some may find the film too talky and bleak, those viewers hardy enough to take the trip will be richly rewarded.
