    Maybe at a festival or critics' screening? It opens this weekend (2/22) in NY, and I'm debating whether to see it. The trailer was underwhelming, but it's the directing debut of Arliss Howard (whom I like) and the return to the screen of Debra Winger (who's usually interesting).

    I saw this last year at the Toronto Film festival.

    I found the film to be just OK and a somewhat low-key affair.

    The film works best as a kind of actor's 'showcase', rather than a compelling narrative film.

    That said, both Howard and Winger are quite good in the film.

    Can't comment on the film, haven't seen it, but I highly recommend the soundtrack!

    Picked it up only because it has a couple of new Tom Wait's songs. Figuring the rest would be forgettable, I was really pleased that every track is something I wanted to hear, alot.
