An inner-city high school teacher discovers she is pregnant at the same time as one of her most promising students and the two develop an unlikely friendship while struggling to navigate their unexpected pregnancies.
When a group of old college friends reunite over a long weekend after one of them attempts suicide, old crushes and resentments shine light on their life decisions, and ultimately push friendships and relationships to the brink.
A young couple, Peter and Ruby, are married with three children. On a weekend trip a tight-knit group of friends confront them about their constant bickering and propose they divorce. Reacting in anger, the couple clearly realize the truth in what their friends are trying to say; nonetheless, they remember their old feelings for each other and decide instead to strive to improve their relationship. Later, the intervention is turned around on Annie (Lynskey) and her alcohol problem, while she begins to realize that her conspired marriage intervention for Ruby and Peter may have been based on her suppressed doubts about her own impending wedding.Written by

The moon is shown on consecutive nights. The first time, it is full or nearly so. The second time, it is waxing gibbous. There are two problems. First, this is the reverse order of the phases in North America; second, there appears to be about 3 to 5 days difference between the phases, not 1. See more »

I was very interested in seeing Clea DuVall's directorial debut. For years I have only known her as an actress (a very capable one) so I wanted to see what her skills behind the camera, and behind the typewriter if I must say, were. I definitely think there are some contrivances here, flaws that continually stick out. The film is a bit disjointed at times and unsure of where it really wants to go, and yet it still never falls apart and is quite enjoyable. Although the screenplay is very flawed, it also shows a good amount of talent in its dialogue that makes me interested in what DuVall can create next. The reason it works so well is probably because of the very talented and dedicated cast. I do recommend it.
