Goodbye to All That
First screened in December 2014
Director: Angus MacLachlan. Cast: Paul Schneider, Melanie Lynskey, Audrey Scott, Anna Camp, Heather Lawless, Heather Graham, Ashley Hinshaw, Michael Chernus, Celia Weston, Amy Sedaris. Screenplay: Angus MacLachlan.

Twitter Capsule: Angus MacLachlan remains genuinely interested in behavior, and in actors who are genuinely interested in it.

Second Capsule: Goodbye to All That belongs to the FANTASY genre because what if it were an OPTION for CELIA WESTON to be your THERAPIST??!!

Third Capsule: Goodbye to All That also belongs on the Discovery Channel, because WHO is this Heather Lawless and WHERE can I see more of her immediately?

VOR:   Perhaps too generous, but almost nobody tries this vein of observational, region-specific adult dramedies anymore, or so delicately parses a likeable lead character's vicissitudes and contradictions.
