CGiii Comment

Considering the amount of producers...and, not one noticed that (1) swallowing this relationship is one almighty ask...and, (2) he's a doormat and she is indescribably vile! Apathy soon sets in.

The production values are low, the likability is even lower...cheap, little independent films need to fight tooth-and-nail to get noticed, they rely - if they are lucky enough to be chosen - on [complimentary] words-from-the-mouths of film festivals attendees. No-one was talking about Wild Honey Pie!

Independent filmmakers - all too often - forget about their [potential] audiences. Directors...give them something to work with...give them something to like, something to admire...an over-acted, actor-ish central performance [accompanied by some slapstick] is not the way to go.

Jamie Adams needed to direct his actors and re-write his characters...then, perhaps, the audience would be talking about his film - in a more positive light - at the bar, somewhat sozzled, afterwards.

The(ir) Blurb...

A couple’s marriage runs into trouble.

A British sex comedy starring Jemima Kirke (Jessa in Girls ) as Gillian, an ambitious wouldbe stage writer and director whose marriage to her genial Welsh husband, Ollie (Richard Elis), is on the rocks. After a stint of bi-curiousity, she gets together with one of Ollie’s oldest male friends, while Ollie kisses old flame Rachel (Sarah Solemani). Much semi-improvised millennial angst and comedy ensue as Gillian decides to stage a ’Shakespeare by the Sea’ festival, all set against a backdrop of Welsh beaches and seaside towns.
