In writer-director Catherine Jelski’s feature debut we follow Charlie (Devon Gummersall), a spoiled Hollywood wannabe whose father is a hotshot TV-commercial director, through a very bad day. His girlfriend (Arly Jover) is getting fed up with his ridiculous swagger, his best friend is an asshole, and there’s trouble on the family front. This bleak little drama started as a play, and I’d bet that even onstage it felt contrived. Characters make revealing pronouncements (“I can’t stand people who rely on people!” declaims the obviously needy Charlie), a series of answering-machine messages punctuate the action, and the whole thing trudges along toward the inevitable tragedy. 87 min.
