What it's about: 

Sam Davis (Michael Angarano) convinces his former best friend to spend a weekend with him to rekindle their friendship, at an elegant beachside estate owned by a famous documentary filmmaker. It soon becomes clear that Sam is secretly infatuated with the filmmaker's fiancée, Zoe (Uma Thurman), and that his true intention is to thwart the impending nuptials. As Sam's plan begins to unravel, he is forced to realise how complicated love and friendship can be.

What the critics thought:

"Does Uma Thurman perpetually underestimate herself, or is Quentin Tarantino the only filmmaker who appreciates her?"
- Elizabeth Weitzman, New York Daily News


"If the scenario is unconvincing, debuting writer-director Max Winkler has a feel for the dynamics of this kind of ritualized yet informal social gathering, and his affection for his characters is clear."
- Sheri Linden, Los Angeles Times

"Despite a few grace notes and mildly clever twists, this handsomely produced indie is such a grating turnoff throughout its first third that its minor virtues may be discovered only by insomniac latenight cable viewers."
- Joe Leydon, Variety

He's the love of her life. She just doesn't know it yet.
