Review by ERIN THAYER

June 22, 2019 certified reviewer

What I liked

The subtle lighting queues helped distinguish past from present scenes. The voicemail recordings also helped set the scene.

What I didn't like

I’m not sure if there was a recording that was supposed to play during one of the scene transitions that didn’t, but there was one transition that happened in silence. The other transitions had voicemails the characters left each other, playing during the set changes, which were really effective.

My overall impression

This was an intimate portrayal of a relationship’s end. Langer and Fountain’s performances were entirely realistic and absorbing. Through present day scenes, and flashback moments, the audience saw how both sides recalled the same shared experiences, that ultimately lead to the destruction of the relationship.
