Familiar to fans of television's "How I Met Your Mother" as eternal romance seeker Ted, Josh Radnor is in similar circumstances not only as the star of this comedy-drama but also as its writer and director.
He plays a would-be author who gets insight from a youngster (Michael Algieri) he takes in ... putting a potential dent in his hoped-for romance with a bartender (Kate Mara). Malin Akerman ("Watchmen") is featured as a friend whose medical situation has put her on her own complex path. DVD extras: theatrical trailer; audio commentary by Radnor and producer Jesse Hara; deleted scenes; music selections. *** (R: AS, P) (Also on Blu-ray)Copyright © 2014, Los Angeles Times
