Harmony and Me
Stubbornly embracing his own unhappiness on the heels of a recent breakup, loquacious young songwriter Harmony's self-imposed exile into misery serves as a source of irritation to his headstrong mother, and a curious source of amusement to his eccentric friends. Justin Rice, Kevin Corrigan, and Pat Healy star. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Represents much of what is wonderful and fresh about the recent wave of ultra-low-budget American independent filmmaking."
‑ Mark Olsen, Los Angeles Times
"Despite the film's sketchy aesthetic and barely animate lead, its tone is carefully contrived: I'll wager no one in your circle is as dryly funny or spontaneously surreal as Harmony's nonsupport group."
‑ Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times
"This bagatelle from Bob Byington is Greenberg lite, or maybe an edgier The Office, or softcore mumblecore."
‑ Peter Keough, Boston Phoenix
"It may be true that every generation deserves its droll slacker comedy. But every five years?"
‑ Kent Turner, Film-Forward.com
"Austin, Texas, has never looked more unlovely, and its residents more clueless, than in Harmony and Me, a funny, wry mumblecore comedy by Bob Byington."
‑ Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"Harmony is a finely tuned comedy, complete with precisely scripted jokes and comic set pieces that swerve toward the playfully perverse."
‑ Karina Longworth, Time Out New York
"A great new director with a great and laid back saga that will be too laid back for some but well worth the watching."
‑ Ron Wilkinson, Monsters and Critics
"A mumblecore-ish debut feature from writer-director Bob Byington that's far less interested in oblique conversational navel-gazing than in dry humor."
‑ Nick Schager, Slant Magazine
"In a flat, dry affect, the movie sings the breakup blues."
‑ Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune
"Slight, indifferently shot, and entirely lacking in ballast, Harmony and Me's sole justification for being is that it's consistently very funny."
‑ Vadim Rizov, Village Voice
"Bob Byington's "Harmony and Me" is an indie gem that isn't at all what it appears to be at first glance."
‑ Don R. Lewis, Film Threat
