SYNOPSIS: Based on his play, Neil LaBute's script follows a successful writer (Adam Brody) who, on the eve of his wedding, travels across the country to meet up with ex-lovers in an attempt to make amends for past relationship transgressions. Crisscrossing from Seattle to Boston, he reunites with high school sweetheart Sam (Jennifer Morrison), sexually free-spirited Tyler (Mía Maestro), married college professor Lindsay (Emily Watson), his best friend's little sister Reggie (Zoe Kazan), and "the one that got away" Bobbi (Kristen Bell). Daisy von Scherler Mayer ("Party Girl") directs this journey of a modern-day Candide stumbling through a landscape familiar to most men - messy breakups. (SXSW)
