To be honest when I read the movie's one-line synopsis, I wasn't interested. There are so many of those kind of sad indie comedies made by jaded hipsters that just fall flat, but after hearing some positive reviews from friends I checked it out and was glad I did. This film had such a great mix of heart and laughs, it struck that perfect balance that countless films before it have tried to but almost never succeed it.
Also loved that they used "Do What You Like" by Oxford during the scene in the car with Alex on the way to lunch. There's way too many generic 'indie rock' songs in movies these days, but this tune is up to the standards of the old songwriters like Crosby, Young, Kristofferson, etc.
