I sense that there are great ideas that director and writer Alex Barrett wants to convey here, especially in terms of fresh college graduates. In a way, most of us can relate to the characters at some point, because after college we seem to be drifters, or shall I say, moonlighters and testing the waters of where life will lead us.  The characters of Pete, Tom, Claire and Jay somehow echo these qualities. The movie itself seems to just drift by,  from one scene to the next, with locations mostly limited to the spaces within the house that these young people occupy.  However, while some may appreciate the simplicity and nonchalant flow of scenes there are viewers who can't help but yawn their way through the film.  In one way or another,  this film as subdued as it may seem, tries to convey issues that most young coeds would agree. This movie won the Jury Award at the Mexico International Film Festival and the Golden Kahuna Award from the Honolulu International Festival.

For a moment I thought I was going to doze off while watching this film. Maybe because there were more talking and not much action going on. I noticed that there were countless times the scenes take place in the living room only and with the same repetitive camera angles. I hardly ever noticed close up shots during the intense conversations, which could've captured some interesting emotions amongst these university students.  The characters look promising and have potentials, but in this movie there wasn't stand-outs and this could've been attributed in part to the loopholes in the script. Still,  there are scenarios that are relatable for most college coeds and maybe with some tweaking in the plot this could've been more interesting.
