I love the individual main actors in this movie, and I had read some stellar reviews (NYT, etc.) from reviewers I respect, so I was very much looking forward to seeing this.
OMG (and not in a good way). This felt like one of those experimental student films from the '70s and '80s. All the little mini-episodes are supposed to meld into a coherent story (didn't happen). Slice of life (I guess) type of storytelling. I never really got a feel for any of the characters. Nothing they said or did made any sense whatsoever. The reveal the morning after the "birthday party" defied even the most generous suspension of disbelief (how could two old people move ALL that stuff out of a second floor apartment without being heard). The final reveal at the end (the $525 1/3 part total) was cute, but not as particularly revelatory as one might expect (and that seemed to be the intent).
I found nothing special about the performances (except maybe Gina Rodriguez at her sensual best) nor the direction.
Felt kind of robbed of the 100 minutes or so spent in an almost empty theater on a Saturday night. I ALMOST walked out, except for all the stellar reviews. I kept waiting for the one moment that made everything make sense. It never happened.
