An acclaimed writer, (Greg Kinnear), his ex-wife, (Jennifer Connelly), and their teenaged children, (Lily Collins, Nat Wolff), come to terms with the complexities of love in all its forms over the course of one tumultuous year. 

This sweet and surprisingly solid indie features some excellent performances and smart writing, think Californication meets Crazy Stupid Love.

Director Barbara Schroeder’s true-crime documentary follows a love triangle whose participants had never met beyond cyberspace — yet their passions ended up sending one member to prison and another to the grave.

The twist and turns of this riveting tale might give you nightmares, it’ll also have you rethinking everything you and your family members are doing online.

Half way through the film you’ll think you know and understand everything that’s going on and then, in an instant, you’ll realize you’re wrong.
