Angus MacLachlan gained a lot ofcredibility in the middle of last decade for penning the terrific film, Junebug, and after writing a handful of other films in the years since, he finally decides to direct his own screenplay in Goodbye To All That.
He gets two likable actors in Paul Schneider and Melanie Lynskey at the forefront of his movie, which is about a man who is blindsided by his wife's decision to leave him after what he thought was a good marriage. Is that it? Yeah, there really isn't much else that happens in the movie, which seems to have an idea of a more interesting avenue to take on many different occasions, yet stalls and looks content on just "being". It's 87 minutes of floundering. There are plenty of characters, yet they look handcuffed. It's an unfortunate thing to watch.
