First screened in August 2017
Director: Gillian Robespierre. Cast: Jenny Slate, Abby Quinn, John Turturro, Edie Falco, Jay Duplass, Finn Wittrock, Marquis Rodriguez, Amy Carlson, Ali Ahn. Screenplay: Elisabeth Holm and Gillian Robespierre (based on a screen story by Elisabeth Holm, Gillian Robespierre, and Tom Bean).

Twitter Capsule: Didn't believe these scenes and didn't care about these people, except Edie. Doesn't flatter Slate, New York, or the 90s.

Second Capsule: I don't mean that it was the movie's goal to make them look good. But it doesn't stoke affection, furnish insights, or stir up any interest.

VOR:   Only evokes the 90s by calling up ghosts of callow, Denise Calls Up-style indies that had so little to say but seemed proud of themselves.
