“Mostly I think Tim really loves and cares about his friend Devin,” she continued. “And it seems like some women in film journalism do too. I get it. I totally get loving your friend and feeling at a loss that he is freaking out so much that his ‘career is ruined.’ BUT HERE’S THE THING: HE HURTS PEOPLE. And when you put me, and everyone else, in the position to have to care more about devin’s wellbeing than our own or the people he’s hurt, YOU ARE CONTRIBUTING TO THE ATMOSPHERE THAT RESULTS IN WOMEN NOT COMING FORWARD ABOUT THESE THINGS.

That sound leads them down a rabbit hole involving a potential close encounter of the third kind. Andrew Patterson's feature debut, which won the Audience Award at last year's Slamdance Film Festival, is exceptionally well made, even if at times it feels a tad padded out, as if it were meant to be a half-hour television show.
