Great movie, slightly cliche, but overall well done. I appreciate the way the movie was filmed very much in all close ups.

Feels like a extended student film project, with the exception of the acting of the main protagonists. Otherwise, the characters are divided into caricatures of good vs. bad, both in terms of dimensionality and dialogue. The sound design seems low-budget (intimate dining scenes sound like chatter at a church basement). The cinematography and editing, however, is appropriately paced and moving at times, giving it some sufficient emotional weight to get me through to the end.

This is the most amazing movie I have ever seen in my life! You have to see it!

"Two close sisters, Myah and Beth, struggle with their differences in life and in the older sister's mentally abusive marriage, until the complacent lives of Beth and their married friends are shaken to the core by a tragedy that they are all forced to face. Complacent is a portrait of the middle American lifestyle. The 9 to 5 at a desk job, cookie-cutter homes with manicured lawns, golf three times a week, Florida vacation each year with the family. Only problem.... No one loves the other.... No one strives for more.... No one sees outside his or her own front yard.... They just coast... Question is, can you really go through life like this without deteriorating from the inside? Myah decides that you can't, you have to do more, want more, care more and it sets off a chain of events within the group of friends that is at times amusing and at times heartbreaking, but eventually fatal in both reality and metaphor"
