When Linda asks Raymond in her car if he's in some kind of trouble, the camera cuts away a few times to her reaction, and it's obvious she's reacting to a different actor with a much darker beard. See more »

A great movie, that took me by surprise
22 January 2017 | by loumiles-25568See all my reviews

natural selection - my friend picked this film to watch, and it looked like a slapstick comedy, luckily for me it wasn't. i was not familiar with the actors, but thought all the performances were excellent. this film has a lot of heart, its quirky, but not in a pretentious way. an excellent movie about love and relationships. i found the movie touching sad funny and never knew how the film would end, right up until the credits started to roll. i recommend this movie to just about everyone. if you track it down, grab it you maybe as surprised as i was. fantastic drama comedy, that is as good as any movie with the big budget and big stars.
