An honest take on contemporary relationships....
....packed with genuine interactions and nuanced performances.
It finds the quiet moments when otherwise happily paired people feel alone despite being within armâ€™s reach of their partners....
....and it revels in the rare moments when communication triumphs over silence.
An intimate portrait of three 20-something couples as they travel to a Fire Island beach house to enjoy the last days of summer. But what should be a fun and carefree weekend becomes an exploration of what it takes to sustain a healthy relationship and make love last in what is now being called the "gayest generation." Through each of the three couples â€• one gay, one lesbian, and one straight â€• it explores sex and relationships with a fresh perspective, finding that while sexuality and gender may vary, the struggles to keep love alive do not.

Three 20-something couples â€• gay, lesbian and straight â€• travel to a Fire Island beach house to enjoy the last days of summer, but what was meant to be a fun, carefree retreat transforms into an intimate exploration of sex and commitment. Moment-to-moment, relationships are tested as tensions between the couples and friends begin to simmer. This is a romantic comedy that questions what it takes to sustain a healthy long-term partnership. While gender and sexuality may vary, the struggles to make love last do not.
Whiskey-fueled card games, buzz-killing wisecracks, and overdue emotional conversations are just part of what three New York couples pack into one end-of-the-season beach house vacation. From the refreshingly natural, accessible ensemble cast to the consciously relaxed filmmaking style, everything about it invites the viewer to join the romantic ebb and flow of these young, thoughtful friends.
Al adores her longtime partner Jackie, but itâ€™s tough for them to talk about the sexual dry spell theyâ€™re suffering. Meanwhile, Liz and Dougie canâ€™t keep their hands off each other, though their competitive natures sometimes get in the way of romantic harmony. James and Spencer recently moved in together, but Spencerâ€™s acceptance to graduate school threatens to put both physical and emotional distance between them.
Director William Sullivan and DP Derek Dodge gave their cast a brief outline and let the scenes unfold organically, with the actors improvising much of their dialogue. The result is an honest take on contemporary relationships, packed with genuine interactions and nuanced performances. The film finds the quiet moments when otherwise happily paired people feel alone despite being within armâ€™s reach of their partners, and it revels in the rare moments when communication triumphs over silence. The filmmakers set out to make a romantic comedy about â€œthe marathon of romance,â€ and theyâ€™ve achieved that goal in spades, highlighting the often awkward, funny, and messy work it takes to make love last.
