Adam Brody, Sophie Nélisse, and Sarah Sutherland star in writer-director Evan Morgan’s noirish dramedy. A washed-up 32-year-old private detective seizes the chance to relive his former glory as a celebrated kid detective when a young woman hires him to solve the case of her boyfriend’s brutal murder. The two of them embark on a life-changing investigation of the darker side of small town existence.~Augustine Chay
This is the type of movie that reminds me of why I so frequently go on random movie sprees. This one begins quite funny and light-hearted - using this as brilliant contrast for a darker story. The transition never feels sudden; it, like everything else, grows naturally throughout. The movie is about not judging things by the superficial qualities - similarly, the movie grows ever more complex, and rewarding, than it seems in the humorous beginning. A movie I will watch endlessly - my highest recommendation!
