Thought-provoking, Relevant, Very good acting, Absorbing

See it if you want to see a smart, thoughtful look at Millennials transitioning from coddled youth to self-reliant adults and facing success & failure

Don't see it if u expect a typical slacker comedy about typical 20-somethings. [There are laughs here, but it's a more sober, wiser look @ life's struggles]

Well-played, Well-plotted, 20-something, Intense, Affecting

See it if you’d like to experience an affecting, disturbing look at the plight(s) of a class of millennials as they try to attain full adulthood.

Don't see it if deeply probing psychological naturalism is not your bag. Read more

May 10th, 2019

"Like a 20-something Sorkin, Alex Riad has written a serious story of struggle for identity, connection, and success using crackling humor and genuine feeling. The dialogue is simultaneously realistic and punny...At an hour and 45 minutes, the road to resolution is a little long, though the ultimate destination is very satisfying...Explores societal pressures and their consequences through a lens of wit and affection resulting in a thoroughly entertaining and engaging production."
