Formally impressive but tedious.

A talkfest like this is ripe for disaster, but Quiet City succeeds thanks to its two leads, Erin Fisher as Jamie and Cris Lankenau as Charlie. They're attractive and likable, and they hold our interest throughout.

Adulthood. . .looms on the horizon, but it is forestalled for an instant, or maybe forever. This lack of engagement with the world is both charming and maddening, and it made it difficult, for me at least, to truly like the characters.
