GOODBYE TO ALL THAT explores the aftermath of the abrupt dissolution of an 11-year marriage. Blind-sided, Otto Wall (Paul Schneider) receives the devastating news that his marriage is over from his wife's, Annie's, (Melanie Lysnskey), therapist (Celia Weston). This announcement has a profound affect on, not only Otto, but the couple's precocious daughter, Edie (a delightful performance from Audrey Scott) and makes for very funny, and at times, sad consequences as Otto discovers the rapturous joys and painful pitfalls of dating and single parenthood in our modern age.
4 stars to the strong cast that also includes Heather Graham and Anna Camp. 4 stars to Angus MacLachlan, writer and director, who also brought us the beloved JUNEBUG. And lastly 4 stars to the lovely North Carolina setting.
