I watched this jewel last night and was completely taken away and in by it. Really, I was so drawn to the characters that I felt I was in the scenes with them. It has haunted me all day today in the strangest way, like a longing - I miss them. Okay, well, wow - I wasn’t expecting such resonance from the main character, Chet, afflicted with agoraphobia. But the actor plays him so deeply, tenderly, thoughtfully well, that the agoraphobia factor I forgot about as I grew more spellbound by this man’s internal life. Which Dustin Coffey, the actor playing Chet, makes palpable. There’s a scene where Maggie describes to Chet how strongly she was attracted to her husband’s smell. And that’s what I thought about all day today, that I could almost smell Chet, he was so real. Nice movie. Nice ending. Great music. Thank you for the gift of it.

Simple, Straightforward Movie with Solid Acting
Verified purchase
This was a very simple, straightforward movie about two people trapped in their own hell, but at least they have each other for company. Don't expect anything amazing or shocking to come out of this movie, but it did hold my attention and I ended up caring for both of the main characters. A nice sleeper movie that has heart.

IDEAL MOVIE TO WATCH as we make our way out of a pandemic! THIS FILM FEELS HONEST!
Verified purchase
The first act is slow, but the second and third acts redeem this film.

Honestly? It was a film that feels REAL. The characters really grow as people. Not in that "Hollywood" glossy way, either.

Especially after this pandemic... this film just hits different. If I saw in in 2018.... maybe I'd have a different opinion. But I saw this in 2021, and you know what? I really liked it. I can forgive the production quality because the film felt very honest.

i haven't come across a film that has left me feeling like... it was an honest account of every single one of the characters being themselves.

Unusual, Honest and Touching Film - Highly recommended!
Verified purchase
There is an honesty in this movie that's different from most Hollywood pictures. Two very sad, lonely and trapped people become involved in each others' lives for a short time and help each other along their respective paths. I found the acting and direction to be excellent. The characters are odd each in their own way, and not very likeable at first, but the viewer comes to care about what happens to them. The emotion is real and some of it is hard to watch. I don't want to spoil the key events at the end, so I'll just say I really liked how the ending was handled.

quite a nice little film. the characters, although a little bizarre, are believable, as is their behavior. love that they used non-hollywood types for actors, makes the whole thing more credible. the ending is realistic, as is the way people behave here. draws you in, wanting the best for everyone.

i found this movie looking for agoraphobia self-help books, ha! i thought it was a sweet little movie, and cared about the characters. like other reviewers have mentioned, it probably wouldn't win an oscar, but i don't really care about that anyway. i think the way the main actor portrayed agoraphobia was pretty spot-on, it made me feel see. thanks for this random little gem.

Yet again.
Verified purchase
I was looking for comedies and found this. NOT a comedy in of any nature.

A really good flick about two people dealing (rather ineffectively) with their problems. Slow and focused on their interpersonal dealings, this film is a nice delve into their psyches. Good watch if you can get past the unrelenting although not horribly dark personal problems.

I liked this quirky movie and my husband hated it. The story was interesting but these actors, very obviously, hadn’t spent much time in front of a camera. I’d say it’s worth watching just for the storyline but it’s not going to be up for an Oscar.
