I rarely use iTunes, but I heard there were some good rentals there and so I stumbled upon this film under "Pre-Theatrical Releases." It stars Olivia Thirlby ("Juno"), Rosemarie DeWitt ("Mad Men"), and John Krasinski ("The Office"), and it was co-written by HBO's "Girls" Lena Dunham.
Martine (Thirlby), a 23-year-old artist from New York, arrives in Los Angeles to stay in the pool house of a family living in the hip and hilly community of Silver Lake. Peter (Krasinski), the father, has agreed to help Martine complete sound design on her art film as a favor to his wife. Martine innocently enters the seemingly idyllic life of this open-minded family with two kids and a relaxed Southern California vibe. Like a bolt of lightning, her arrival sparks a surge of energy that awakens suppressed impulses in everyone and forces them to confront their own fears and desires.
The story wasn't too original, it was entertaining enough, but I watched mostly because I fell in love with the Silver Lake home it was filmed at. Four more days until the big move to Southern California, I probably should start organizing and packing.
