I am a fan of the Duplass brothers, i think they get better with each film, i thought Blue Jay was one of thiers but it was written by Mark. From first time director Alexandre Lehmaann, coming from documentary film making, it works. The film almost feels like a doc, Sarah Paulson returns home, runs into her ex Mark Duplass, and the two hang out for the day. They catch each other up on their lives, visit old hang outs, see old people, rehash stories, listen to old rap tapes they made and you feel the love. Love always rears its ugly head, as it gets too much and we learn why their relationship became rocky. It is funny, it is sad, it is heart warming, and it is cringe worthy.
