Being a native northern Californian and current Portlandian, this was an interesting movie from the geographic perspective. Unlike some of the not-great reviews, I liked to slower pace of the movie, and some of the tussles of emotions and choices that the two guys had to make. Like the Leggett hippie couple, I've been married for 50 years (and yes it's entirely plausible that these two old hippies are in Leggett), and a lot of history happens in that amount of time. Are we still happy with the choices we made at 18? Well, they are different as the years go by. People you love may not be the ones you are in love with. I wouldn't make a choice for somebody else, and it's not easy to know what is the best one for any given time in your life.
