Kate and Charlie are a young married couple who party every night and stumble through every day. They are both functioning alcoholics who enable the other person's behavior. When circumstances lead Kate to stop drinking, Charlie is left to sort things out on his own. The acting is cheesy at a couple of points, but the strong script and beautiful story more than make up for it. A nicely made movie from an up and coming filmmaker from Athens, GA, James Ponsoldt the man who is also behind The Spectacular Now.
