I, also, agree on Johnny. Evan did a great job portraying him. A great actor.

Another indie director who thinks its fun and cute to take a wry look at modern loneliness and angst. No solutions or resolution of problems offered, of course. That would spoil the dreary fun. Also, usually I am very tolerant of slow-paced movies but felt like taking a meat axe to this one.

Evan Silverberg is very appealing, touching, and sensationally attractive in his one film.
