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.

Solid dramatic comedy about four sets of couples with their own quirks and problems, giving a good balanced outlook at relationships and the various ways in how they can work and work out.
The cast is great and the comedy is subtle. The film does a good job of addressing multiple viewpoints and informing the audience of who each character is and what they are feeling. The best aspect is probably how then each defined character interacts with each other, as well as which ones don't. Often times you get the feeling more of watching a play than a movie (in a good way).
Overall I recommend this film to people who like real life stories, if you are looking for lots of laugh out loud comedy, high stakes or extreme drama then you won't find it here. But a pleasant, thoughtful and enjoyable look at relationships as they mature is delivered in very fine fashion.
