Consensus: Dean's light touch with heavy themes -- and a talented cast led by writer-director-star Demetri Martin -- help compensate for the familiar story's narrative drift.

It's about imperfections and dealing with the moment, and how the aftermath of death helps shape the way we handle life.

While the direction is capable, the writing isn't nearly as sharp as it needs to be.

A touching dramedy about the different styles of grief.

[Demetri Martin] makes the transition into feature filmmaking as writer, director and star with just the right blend of humor and heartbreak.
