"Does what a no-budget indie should do and burrows deeply into the minutiae of ordinary life." — Scott Tobias, Variety
“Achieves a vibrance that is rare among domestic dramas…draws its crackling energy and joy not from watching its characters reach definitive conclusions, but keeping up the passion to carry on.” — Stephen Saito, The Moveable Feast
“Sympathetic performances, understated direction…reminded me of British filmmaker Mike Leigh.” — Ben Sachs, Chicago Reader
In the emotional rollercoaster of a third feature by Chicago-based director Henry (FOURPLAY), two urban couples, both middle-aged, come to a relationship crisis exacerbated by infidelity, concealed career downturns, and the fact that two of the people are siblings. A tenth anniversary party for real estate broker Zeke (Antoine McKay) and his preschool teacher wife Grace (Sevigny) begins as a hearty tribute to a seemingly strong and happy marriage, until the unexpected arrival of Grace’s troubled younger brother Chris (Mars) and his increasingly restless girlfriend Deena (Christine Horn). Daring no-holds-barred performances push this story into dangerous territory over a period of weeks, as secrets and longtime grudges surface with devastating consequences. DCP digital. (BS)
