Ugly Betty has left the building...
A not-so-pleasant look at us...our selfish, beguiling sexual desires. How we hurt, how we judge, how we make the wrong turns, how we get by...it should all feel uncomfortably familiar.
Breaking and broken hearts...oooooh if we knew then what we know now. It all gets a little intense, this constant need to be part of a couple.
The main problem with X/Y is time, at 80 minutes, it's short ...there are too many stories - some more deserving than others...a case in point, the fallout after the rough and tumble of the 'accidental' very passionate man-on-man sex scene is - quite frankly - inadequate.
Also, the [abrupt] ending - it will displease quite a few.
Performance wise...there are no weak links. Adequate direction and some solid writing make this a passable way to spend 80 minutes - it leaves you wanting more - which is not always a bad thing.
A look at the lives and interactions of a group of friends living in New York.
