What starts as a moving story about trauma slowly develops into a exploration of friendship that isn't all that fun..
Not that every movie needs to have fun to be compelling. Nor does it need to be fast paced, in fact, this type of story benefits from a bare bones approach. The two main actors do their finest but the script is .... thin. There is little explication and characterization through behavior, what we get is a series of dialogues that explain away the number one rule: show, don't tell. Or rather, these characters NOT telling seems to be used to try and create depth. The cinematography is fine, nothing to go crazy over. The strengths here really are Lawrence and Henry who add much needed levity to the writing. I left this movie feeling like I understand very little about these characters or what they actually want.
