Di­rec­tor: James C. Strouse Star­ring: Je­maine Cle­ment, Regina Hall, Jes­sica Wil­liams Ver­dict: Look­ing for a love that won’t pos­sess him

A SUR­PRISE ( and welcome) about- face in act­ing style from New Zealand star Je­maine Cle­ment ( the one with the glasses in com­edy duo Flight of the Con­chords) is the prime call­ing card of a wist­ful, low- key con­tem­po­rary ro­man­tic com­edy. Cle­ment de­liv­ers some of his finest work as Will, a graphic artist in the slow process of pick­ing up the pieces af­ter his mar­riage is shat­tered by his wife’s in­fi­delity. The me­an­der­ing na­ture of some scenes will rouse im­pa­tience in some view­ers, but there can be no deny­ing there is def­i­nite qual­ity and sub­stance in play here. Co- stars Regina Hall.
