A reverie of a love story which still manages to be realistic though the dreamy cinematography and choppy narrative is unlikely to cater for everybody's taste.
In a small North Carolina town, a caddish lothario develops a relationship with his best friend's sexually-inexperienced sister, who has only just returned home following her years at an all-girls boarding school. It's an astute study of a romantic entanglement which tears apart a circle of friends as well as itself.
The acting performances are good, particularly from Zooey Deschanel, but the director's penchant for cloudscape photography is often a little too pretentious.
