I'm really a bad person

This is an indie chick flick. It is about "the relationship." After a whole year, Jack (Mark Duplass) can't get over his brother's death, an indication this has written by a woman who believes men think like women. At the recommendation of his brother's ex-girlfriend Iris (Emily Blunt) he utilizes a remote cabin on an island in Washington state. As he arrives late at night Iris' sister Hannah (Rosemarie DeWitt) is also there. She just broke up with her girlfriend and they hit it off well, in fact a little too well.

Iris, for some unexplained reason, arrives and confesses to her sister her love for Jack, one that is mutual but never spoken. We wait for the moment.

The movie starts out with a bunch of pretentious dialogue, including the old, "remember when he stole a wheelchair" flashback. The dialogue was written badly. The acting was good, and I admit Lynn Shelton did a better job at directing this formula than writing it. Can we stop with a guy riding a bicycle with beautiful scenery to an acoustical accompaniment? It is time to move on.

Parental Guidance: F-bomb. Brief sex scene. No nudity.

garbage!

This review contains spoilers:

I have been IMDb's member for 20+ years, never felt that I need to write a review but this movie is such a piece of trash and so wrong that I felt compelled to do so.

The movie started really well but went downhill with he discovery of the poked holes in the condom. Let's put aside the odds of a getting pregnant with one time sex and how the lesbian found a condom in a moment's notice ( assuming it was in the medicine cabinet of the cottage , perhaps belonging to her dad who used to sleep around, really old condom?)

My main issue with movie is that it is downplaying the sexual assault and movie ended up having a happy ending ???? I know it was consensual sex but with the use of condom to prevent STDs and unintended pregnancies. I agree that one must take some risks having sex with condom but intentionally poking holes should be considered criminal. If the roles were reversed, the guy poke holes in the condom or stealthing and as a result the female gets pregnant, would it still be considered OK?

Reading some of the reviews, bragging about such a love story this is, I am deeply saddened how morally bankrupt our society has become!

Naturalism is a Mixed Bag

There is always the question of whether a naturalistic indie film is essentially a documentary or reality show, or an actual movie meant to entertain.

I give credit to the performers for improvising their lines and looking disheveled, as we do in real life, when staying at a cabin and not expecting company.

But do we tune in to a movie to escape realism or embrace it? I guess I like it, as long as there is a sufficient amount of drama and/or there is exceptionally interesting dialog. But of course there is a problem with that too. Because most of us don't speak in interesting dialog, so a natural Indie almost needs to portray humans as ordinary and flawed.

Well, let's put it this way. I like a natural film portraying interesting people. But the people in this one were not interesting. They all seem unemployed, self-absorbed, and immature for their ages.

They also seem quite Godless. Sex requires very little thought beforehand, but plenty afterwards. I guess that's better than little thought at both times.

I do like the idea that they go to a place with no T.V. or internet, and must entertain themselves with books, cooking, and conversation. Also, the scenery was attractive, during the few scenes shot outdoors.

Why the hell is one sister British and the other is not? They tried to explain that by saying that the dad went through some period of drifting in England. Are they half sisters?

Emily Blunt doesn't wear much makeup here. But there is something appealing about her at the grass roots level.

I liked the guy. He was quirky without appearing self-conscious. Consequently, he was genuinely funny.

It's a simple dialog-based film. I like writer-driven projects. So I will recommend this one to those with patience. But be aware that nothing interesting or profound is spoken.
