#1 / Monday 24 June, 2013 / 13:21 GMTJuno Temple gives a great performances as becoming in the spiral of her mental sanity in the film but Michael Cera steals it just from her as he provides a good mix of humour and acting when he comes to release the impact of his actions.
It was the ending that let this film down for me which didn't seem to fit with all the build up.
At least it was a pat on the back for the EdFilmfest staff who recommended it for me.
