POSTERS

Synopsis:

A thirtysomething meets a girl, the daughter of a former high school chum, and his life starts spinning out of control.

  • Poster: C-

Review:

There are certain styles of poster design that instantly cause me to cringe and this is one of them. It's trying too hard to show off its cast while trying to be "artful" with the diagonal design but fails to go beyond the predictable.

  • Trailer: C-

Review:

Michael C. Hall seems to be going through the motions here, seeming to pick up this film as a small big screen paycheck instead of something meaningful. As the poster accompanying it, this generic trailer lacks that appealing element that would carry it to a broader audience.

Oscar Prospects:

None.
