All the Lonely People

UNTOGETHER focuses on four intelligent people trying to cope in the wasteland of LA. Tara (Lola Kirke) and Andrea (Jemima Kirke) , two sisters (in real life, too) who live together, both have needs: massage therapist Tara, something to fill the void left by the death of their father; Andrea, a once famous writer, someone to corral her and help her move toward a normal life, having just kicked an addiction. Martin (Ben Mendelssohn), a washed up former rock star- turned sign painter and fairly happy-go-lucky, loves Tara but receives a devastating wake-up call from her when her plans go awry. Nick (Jamie Dornan), a doctor, memoir writer, and hook-up guy, has a one-night stand with Andrea. Her quirky personality attracts him, though, enough that he wants to continue seeing her. Both think it's a casual affair, but maybe there's more to it. The acting is great, all of the characters displaying a vulnerability and loneliness that makes them universal and likable even with their combined personality flaws. For example, Jamie Dornan could have played Nick as a despicable user considering everything that's wrong with him, but Dornan makes him sweet and soulful and sensitive to Andrea's sadness. The subtle humor bites, such as the way Andrea pokes fun at Nick's lack of writing skills and her decision to edit the Torah, and how Nick sings "Danny Boy" and composes a Haiku for her cat. At one point Tara is rockin' it at the temple with the rabbi (Billy Crystal) while her boyfriend Ben is doing the same at a bar where he's gotten a gig after so many years. This parallel and others that spring up throughout the story, like Nick losing his license while Andrea taking driving lessons to get hers, are fun. All in all, the movie is an enjoyable look at the complications of modern life among 20-30 somethings.

NOT GREAT, BUT PRETTY GOOD
Verified purchase
Funny how people giving bad reviews think it should have been something other than it was. It's a story that some people made up. I thought the acting was great. I believed everyone, even though I am only used to Lola Kirke from Mozart in the Jungle and she pretty much looked the same. The story could have ended MANY different ways and I was happy with how it did. Maybe not realistic enough for everyone, but it seemed a simple story about people making choices and working through life.

So much talent, so little...everything else.

I like every single one of the actors in this film. Ben M, The Kirke's, Alice Eve, Billy Crystal, all of them and more. However, this is one of those movies that belongs among all of those movies from about 2010-2015, where it's a whole lot of people acting like idiots, doing things that you may excuse at a certain young age, but they are all far too old to make the mistakes they do. It is just the type of movie that for the last decade has been called "poignant", because that is the go to word for this class of movie. At least in this one, there are a few redemptive moments, and some sort of conclusion. Rather than all those that used to do all of the above and then just end with no resolution to anything. While watching I kept thinking of "Between Us", which was a movie that spent it's entire time excusing the terrible behavior of one character, then after having an affair, while arguing with her husband, it just ends. The movie was less than 1.5 hours long, it could have easily spent an extra 10 minutes to give the viewer a proper end. However, it might lose the "poignancy" if it had an actual defined ending. I was glad it turned out better than that, which is why this one earned an extra star. However, this is such a waste of talent. Honestly, easily in the top 1% of talented casts, not just top heavy, but many amazing people. This review is too long for just a simple Amazon rental review, but I am not deleting it. So, if you've hung in this far, you've wasted enough time reading this. Don't waste any more on this film. Take care. Best wishes.

Sexy, gritty, unexpected love.
Verified purchase
Jemima Clarke chews up every scene. People hate to love her brazen character. Jamie Dornan plays a sexy, tortured best-selling writer with something to hide. He is seduced by his own hype but feels something is missing - his quirky one night stand is a wonderful distraction but she might be what he’s missing. His character seems like an imposter from the beginning but it is wonderfully refreshing when he is forced back to earth. It is an unexpected love story - messy, cliche and sometimes boring but genuine is better than the alternative.

good actors, great setting, subpar material
Verified purchase
I really like the actors who make up the main characters of this movie. I'm also a sucker for california stories. this has all the right elements but the storylines are a bit superficial. I guess in a way that is realistic for LA but I imagine this movie could have been refined to explore the characters more deeply.

For the most part, I lied the movie. However, I did not lik Andrea. She was a snarky bitch. One review I read called her sweet. She was no whrre near sweet. At least you learned her name , and the titlr of her book.You never learn Nick's last name or the name of his book. Thrre were a few poins of continuity tike a lot. When Nick got on the bed after going around barefoot, the bottoms of his feet were filthy as they would have been if he had been goig around barefoot.

Pretty actors with skill and a terrible plot
Verified purchase
I kept waiting for something interesting or actually meaningful to happen, and it never did. I watched it because Jamie Dornan is hot, and I like Jemima Kirke from Girls. I guess there were some ok sex scenes, but I didn't buy that chemistry. The sister's dabble into Judaism was interesting, but ended in a dead-end (no spoilers). I'd say it was a waste of time. Fortunately, I watched it while sewing a quilt, so at least the time wasn't entirely wasted. I don't recommend this movie as a drama or sexy movie. I guess if you just want to see some beautiful people on the screen, it's maybe worth hitting play.
