Nicolás de Jesús,
This is kind of "Who's Afraid of Virginia Wolf" meets "Friends". As IMDb points out, much of the movie was actually filmed in sequence, and it kind of shows. The male actors start off kind of rocky, but by about 15 minutes in, they're quite believable. Michelle Mosley and Eleese Longing are spot on from the very first mark.
While the situation seems bizarre, it does kind of remind me of the intense passion of being in your early twenties, where people aren't always kind with their emotions or those of others and manipulation just for the fun of it isn't unknown. When there's a lot of hurt inside and not a good language or forum to safely get it out, these things actually do happen. If you've ever lived through anything like that, then you'll recognize these characters.
Overall, I liked the film. The production value is oddly in tact with the bizarreness of the film. At first it really feels stilted, but as the action speeds up, the film making becomes really quite good. Since I am seeing the same thing as with the male actors, I'm wondering if there's some hidden point here - or if it just got better because it was in sequence.
It's worth seeing if you like character driven films that reflect the idea that no matter how sure of ourselves we look on the outside, there's always an inner frailty.
